    Western Digital Network drive prob.
    Having used a Windows machine since Win 3.11 I've recently taken the plunge and gone for a 27" imac, 4GB RAM i5 (..814) . Wow! what can I say?! One problem though........

    Previously, I've been storing all my photographs on a Western Digital myBookLive Network Drive plugged in to my router. No problems. Reads and writes tickety-boo. After initial problems with the mac 'seeing' this drive (had to change sockets on the router), I must now format the drive to enable me to write to it - I should add that all my photographs are now on the mac HD and are in my iphoto Library. What should I do to the drive?

    I've tried going in to 'Disk Utilities' but the dialogue refuses to see it, listing only the native HD and another external drive I have plugged in to one of the USB sockets.

    Are you trying to format it over the network? If so try plugging it into your Mac USB ports and formatting it.
