Hey all,

I made the mistake of buying a MyBook World EditionII (1TB) drive before I really knew its limitations. I'm having major problems trying to get Time Machine to work on it over the network, and in general it is just causing headaches all around.

Here's my question - Does anyone know of a way to connect an ethernet-only (NAS) drive to either the usb or firewire on my iMac? I'd rather just do away with the network connection on the drive, but have been unable to find any solutions on the web. (There's a USB connection on the drive, but that is only for connecting additional drives to the MyBook to expand capacity.)

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks
