Splashed out some money on a Lacie ethernet home mini 500GB NAS device and for some reason it only works on my PCs and is not recognized on my imac. I get the message that it is not found on the local network. Is there a setting that I can check? Still it looks nice on the desktop, may convert it to a book-end if no success. Cheers

So, tell us a little bit about what precludes you from being able to use it on your Mac.

Generally, the procedure to connect to an SMB file server (which a NAS that works with Windows generally qualifies as) is something like this:

* In the Finder, click the 'Go' menu and click 'Connect to Server'
* If the NAS doesn't automagically appear in the Window, type the address of the NAS in this format:

smb://<NAS box name or IP address>

For example, in my case, it looks like this:

smb://dns-323

Where dns-323 is the host name of my NAS box.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
