TweetOne thing that most new parents don’t realize is how quickly their little bundles of joy become children who are running around and terrorizing their homes, and how quickly those children become teenagers and then adults who have lives and homes of their own.
Most baby books are the parents filling in the basic data – height, weight, measurements, ect.
At a time when people are storing more data than ever before and more households have multiple computers (and networked devices) in them there is a growing need for connected storage.
With that in mind Western Digital has released a new version of their My Book World Edition. The Western Digital My Book World Edition 1TB is essentially a single disk version of the company’s ShareSpace. On the hardware side the My Book World Edition is a white plastic enclosure about the size of a hardcover book.
The online controls that will be accessed through the browser are very easy to use so long as you have a basic understanding of networking and storage. In my testing the My Book World Edition up to my network, just like I would any NAS device.
One interesting angle WD has played up with the World Edition is it’s green friendliness. If I have music content on the laptop and the MWB will it use both as sources to sync the ipod? After you’ve done that you should be able to configure cifs(or whatever you want to use) and users to log in through. I have been trying to transfer data with the LAN connection to my laptop and I am getting a max of 200KB transfer rate. Currently I am having trouble connecting to my xbox with it, but Im sure I’ll figure it out. Hi Guys, I’m on the verge of buying the MyBook World Edition 1TB NAS but I want to know if I was to go on holiday, would I be able to connect to my drive from my laptop if I find a wi-fi connection or would I need to subscribe to mionet? Once I managed to install it, it will crash my system if I don’t use my computer for a while.
NOT to be confused with the excellent Alison Bechdel memoir of the same name out this year, of course. The pluckiness of the baby bird is what I always loved best about this story – that and the certainty, even through all the failures, that eventually the bird family will be reunited. Features everything from librarian previews of upcoming children's books to news, reviews, and videos. Network attached storage units have started becoming popular with the rise of powerful home networking solutions.
The My Book Live lineup consists of 1 TB, 2 TB and 3 TB Western Digital hard disks in an external enclosure with a GbE port and a power adapter port.
I remember costly multi-drive NAS costing more than this without including any HDDs and performing much worse. Thanks for review!But you should note - this device can work as a decent DLNA server and provide all your media content library to all your DLNA-certified devices (TVs, notebooks, set-top boxes, smartphones, etc.).
Venya, Thanks for your informative posts (which, I am sure, lot of readers will appreciate).I did mention Twonky in the second page of the review.
I have over 1 TB (yes, terabyte) of music, 600 GB of movies, and 900 GB of TV shows, and two desktops and two laptops that want access.I use RipIt and Handbrake for movies and XLD for music.
Speaking from experience, I've found having a small, cheap, configurable NAS on my home network to have a bunch of advantages. The Western Digital My Book (4TB) ($209.99 list) desktop-class external hard drive gives the photo, music, or video collector a place to keep a whole lot of files.

You may be an established writer or first time one but you need hand holding for marketing your books to get better results in terms of their reach, visibility and sales figures.
We pick projects that we believe in and can deliver more than 100% of our time, effort and energy to, which is why even our senior most resources are dedicated to one project at a time. I have had the privilege and honour of promoting over half a dozen of the most controversial books of our times and coincidently it started with a book on Dr. A few years ago (when we were still discovering the effects of online medium in the industry) I was sitting with a writer couple who very fervently asked how they could break the 5000 copies barrier. You've written thousands of words for days, months and sometimes a decade, have put in your heart and soul into writing one and are now ready to give it the shape of a book. The exterior of the WD My Book Essential hasn't changed significantly since the line was first introduced. The small part of the back panel that isn't a vent sports a USB3.0 port, the power connector port and a power switch. This edition of the Western Digital My Book Essential is an incremental bump to an established line of external hard drives. In the meantime, I planned it out in my head which led to my designing it a little differently from the screenshots. I am making an "Our Adventure Book" for my daughter and her fiance, as thier wedding reception has an "Up" theme.
This book will also be kept in thier guest room (once they have one) for thier guests - a picture will be taken with them, and comments about thier stay included. Briefly:Welcome to The Red Monkey Blog, where my various Los Interwebz monkikers (ender, enderFP and Red Monkey) all babble about this, that and, of course, the other. I just moved back to Albuquerque after many long years in exile (in Indiana of all places).
My Book About Me, however, is a book that is designed to let children tell their own story. When your child is grown, you can whip out the book and show them exactly what they thought of their life at the age they were when they wrote it. Something like a network-attached storage (NAS) device is the ideal tool for sharing data with multiple computers as well as backing up those same systems.
Where the ShareSpace has four drives the My Book has only one, but the software and feature sets are practically identical so we’ll be keeping this article brief. There is a Basic mode for people who are new to networked storage, but the Advanced mode is easy enough to use that almost any NAS user will feel comfortable with it.
This was also the case with the ShareSpace, which was faulted by many people for it’s slow (often under 10MBps) transfer speeds. Has worked well as source for music so far (all of 2 months – fingers crossed), but I have kept all files still on laptop. Will I-tunes still sync with i-pod using my stored music files on MWB after I delete music content from laptop?
There seemed to be at least three options mentioned in the instruction manual for resetting. There are times the share is not accessible for some reason but i have read these are the common problems in NAS of any brand. You need to register to Mionet but file transer feature is just free and some other basic features so you don’t need to worry about it.
The device seemed to work fine to begin with, then started freezing when copying large files over – the only thing that would unfreeze was a physical power down and restart. I have had a couple of problems with this thing from the get go.when I loaded the software for it, the buttons to install showed up, but they had no writing on them.

I had mentioned in one of the earlier NAS reviews that we have stopped seeing PowerPC based NAS platforms. Potential customers should realize that the My Book Live doesn't provide data redundancy or availability. The unboxing and setup impressions, benchmarking results and a walkthrough of WD's personal cloud features are the various aspects covered in the rest of the review. Software-wise this is based on Twonky Media server.Only this feature alone make this device worth to purchase!
The DLNA server it runs is TwonkyServer, which I couldn't make work in HD with my Samsung 650 LCD TV. It exists just to make up for the deficiencies of the products involved.The My Book Live is pretty neat and does its job of exposing the available files via a SMB share.
It's what you need if you're a compulsive video downloader, photograph everything you do, or need to keep every MP3 you own in one place. It's basic, utilitarian storage that will get the job done, and sometimes that's all you need.
So let's make it special, think out of the box and work towards making your book a bestseller. We help identify that one big idea and create the entire communication around it in order to target your audience well. You could be at a stage of writing one or have already published your book, we have something to cater to your book marketing needs at every stage. I've never seen him repeat an incident from his life and each time, his stories made us break into peals of laughter. The top model features a single 4TB drive and a USB3.0 interface to help speed up the process of filling it up. The only other features that break up the plastic are a tiny white activity LED on the front of the unit just above the small WD logo.
Despite the fact that the letters look like Ellie cut them out, I kept seeing them as stitched onto the leather cover. I am not one of the Dineh, but have been fascinated with the Navajo, New Mexico, the mesas and the desert Southwest since I was a wee lia€™l monkey. There are a few different childrens books that allow you to record details, but there is one, My Book About Me, which allows children to make their own story about their life!
There are classic questions to answer, such as “I am (insert here) tall”, and then there are some of the sillier questions to answer, like how many windows and faucets their home has, and it even asks children to get autographs from certain people in their neighborhood. It’s a wonderful way to have fun with your child (filling out the book) and to create a keepsake that they, and their children, will cherish for a lifetime. Most of these devices aren’t limited to working with your computer either, they can share files with things like an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows Media Extender, connected television, and others.
The new one-terabyte World Edition has revamped the internals, making for a device that has faster transfer speeds than previous models as well as slight changes to the exterior. It is clearly designed to be placed on a bookshelf or desktop as the design is not stackable and there are no feet included for placing the drive on its side.
You will just have to map a network drive, which is very easy using any network discovery tool (but, just to be safe, WD includes one). Through six tabs (System, Network, Storage, Media, Users, and Status) you can control all the NAS’ functions, from your login password to creating user accounts and all the other functions you would expect. Taking that into account WD has promised faster speeds with the My Book and they didn’t disappoint.
Want to free up memory and delete these from laptop, and I am happy that MWB is up to this with laptop off. The one that worked with no loss of data was pressing the reset button on the back of the MWB for 10 seconds.
I am using this to store my media files, documents and play media using my computer or my WDTV live media player.
After that, normal performance just got worse and worse, constant problems copying files to and from the device.
She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she'd love to tell you about but that she's sure you'd find more interesting to hear of in person.
Also, this book and the Berenstein Bears taught me that most mothers in the animal kingdom wear polka dots. With the Intel Atom pushing out Marvell chipsets from the mid-to-high end NAS market, Marvell chipsets took over the low end market based on the PowerPC platforms. Now, if only the TVs were good enough to just recognize and read from Samba shares, DLNA could have been rendered unnecessary.uPnP is pretty good by itself (It enables the Play To functionality in Windows), and all this DLNA standardization on top has only served to confuse consumers further. Instead of having to keep my desktop machine running when I'm not using it, I have a 5W server and a connected USB drive that powers up and down as needed.
It won't wow you with esoteric connectors, data redundancy, or blazing throughput rates, but it's a good choice if you want to hold a million songs or photos in one place. Vents on three of the drive chassis' surface mean that the hard drive doesn't require active fan cooling.

Like its predecessors in the Essentials line, the My Book is marketed primarily as a backup storage device.
And almost every crazy little homemade or scrapbook I had as a kid had a kind of canvas-y looking material that created the binding.
The book will both house some pictures and memorabilia of thier dating, and will have space for guests to sign-in and make comments. AND I know a kid that looks just like Russell, and we are paying him to dress up and do photo ops with guests! The main mesa pictured here and in the header is Dzlith-Na-O-Dith-Hle just south of Farmington. In fact, they are more useful than you might think, especially once you factor in features like remote access. Another change at this point is that the My Book has a new firmware that is said to improve transfer performance greatly. This means that once the drive is on your network and powered up you will have access to it under a minute.
A quick look through this area will make it clear that the the My Book World Edition is for home users, not businesses, as many business features (Active Directory, etc.) are not present. Windows Vista also recognized it which means that I could see it through Network discovery (Start > Network) or by mapping a drive. Initial real-world testing from a PC (with a wired connection) to the My Book moved along at about 16-17MBps when transferring a 1GB file to the NAS. Remote access is handled through MioNet and you get a free account with the drive so there are no subscription charges to worry about. While the World Edition will satisfy most people looking for simple connected storage it will be best for home users who are looking for a basic solution and don’t need business features or redundancy. I will keep my laptop music folders even when empty, saw this mentioned in a forum as important. I upgraded my network infrastructure to gigabit but the bottleneck is the rubbish hardware on the NAS, not the ethernet.
A couple of PC’s use the included software to backup to it, a mac uses superduper to backup to it and a linux laptop uses rsync.

Her opinions are her own and do not reflect those of EPL, SLJ, or any of the other acronyms you might be able to name.
Many mainstream consumers also don't want the burden of configuring and running a NAS with multiple hard disks. Today, PowerPC platforms power network attached hard disks such as the My Book Live we are dealing with today. This is aimed at users who want to add centrally accessible storage to their home network without the cost burden or setup hassles of a full fledged NAS. There are some configuration XML files for Twonky where you can setup separate profile for your TV and change content type. The end result is we pay less for electricity (important here in Hawai'i, given the rates we're charged) and it generates less heat (important on the days we run the AC).
Other drives like the Western Digital My Book Studio II and the Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Drive for Mac (3TB) have LED indicators that tell you when they are filling up.
It ships formatted as NTFS and includes WD SmartWare backup software for Windows 7 and Windows 8 pre-installed. For 4TB of storage intended to be used primarily for backup and archiving that sells for around $200 at most retailers, this is a good value. You get all this back story into the life of Carl in a short amount of time and with very little dialogue. So while external USB hard drives (direct-attached storage devices) are useful, the move to a networked device is something that more and more people should be considering. This was a problem many people had with the ShareSpace though the firmware for that is on its way (we’ll be doing a follow-up article). WD’s setup can be as simple as setting a password or it can be quite in-depth, with email alerts, remote access, user accounts, group permissions, and so on. The My Book has an iTunes server as well as UPNP support and DLNA 1.5 certification so your media can be streamed all over.
Once the drive was setup on my network it was fully accessible from all my computers and I was able to map it to a drive letter for easy access through my Vista system. MioNet includes a third party in your information transfers but it greatly simplifies the setup and makes sharing with friends and coworkers effortless.
I am sure WD will release a NAS that runs Gigabit speed as this is now today’s trend. I’ve trawled the Western Digital support forums and there are many others in my situation, with no resolution to the problem.
I have a 1Tb hitachi drive plugged into the USB port and the MYbook is backed up to the Hitachi every night with rsync. Even though the unit doesn't provide NAS features, it does include features to create periodic backups of its contents.
This way, there would be no confusion about supported DLNA profiles and other such stuff (I believe on-the-fly transcoding by any media server program is just hiding the inefficiency of the renderer.. This means that the drive is more suited to causal use than hardcore file transfers or as a scratch disk for graphics tasks.
You can also setup Drive Lock for security, which uses hardware encryption to keep your data safe from prying eyes. After a straightforward initial setup and backup session, the software will run in the background and create incremental backups transparently and with adjustable levels of version control. And that story speaks to everyone - the kids (and the kids inside us adults) love the explorer theme - the kid beginning I think hooks the kids in the audience and gets them through the silent backstory that the adults mostly cry over. On the back the My Book has a power button and three connections: gigabit ethernet, USB, and power.
This means that you don’t get the speed of something like eSATA but transfers move along good enough pace.
WD handles backup with Anywhere Backup which does both one-click and continuous (incremental) backups of your computer.
Wd photos is really good but as of now zoom is not yet supported but im sure they will add that soon.
Havn’t had any problems BUT I do think you need to raise the unit up so there is good airflow from underneath. In desperation, the hatchling calls out to a boat and a plane, and at last, convinced he has found his mother, he climbs onto the teeth of an enormous power shovel. The benefit of the design is that the drive itself is quiet: without cooling fans, you'll barely be able to hear the drive unless you hold your ear close to the chassis while the drive is transferring files.
On the back, you'll find a USB 3.0 mini-b connector for the included cable, plus a jack for the AC adapter, and another for a Kensington lock.
Mac users who want to take advantage of the USB3.0 interface shipping on current generations of Apple hardware can reformat the drive to HFS+ and use the drive as a Time Machine volume.
And then Ellie's bright paintings also keep the kids focused on what is important to the story. Transfer speeds mark a clear distinction between the My Book and higher-end NAS devices that hit much greater speeds.
It is not the most robust backup solution, but it works easily enough and it will allow users to backup their systems as well as retrieve deleted files. If you have problems with the device try unplugging and plug back the power supply, or reset by using the reset button the one in between the power supply jack and ethernet jack for around 4 seconds if led starts to flash up and buttom alternately then you can release the reset button. My desktop is where all of our photos first land, and I have a script that runs periodically to copy all the photos to the server. It's all automated, so I never have to worry about making sure it's all backed up, other than checking the logs every now and again to make sure the copy's working OK.Similarly, my wife likes having a copy of all our photos on her laptop so she can have them to show people when she's away from home. If youre was lucky enough to buy Samsung TV before reading forums about their problems ;)Actually, with my initial comment I just said that Ganesh skipped very important aspect in this review - DLNA. In the past, I ran an rsync server on my desktop machine so she'd get copies that way, but making sure she was up to date required coordination - I'd have to make sure my desktop was on at the same time as her laptop. If those guys have a problem accessing it could be the drive because you are using a single drive unit, ip address of the nas is set to static and maybe in the different subnet.
All features and problems should be in review itself but not in user comments, dont you think? Because it's always on, I'm fairly certain that I have a good backup of all her stuff.Personally, I also like running backups to a volume that's not always mounted on the machine being backed up. I've always thought that USB drives as a backup solution invite disaster, as they're likely always mounted, and therefore fully accessible in the event that you catch some nasty virus that decides to delete all of your files. For example, when we were out on holiday last month, as we filled the flash cards for our cameras, I'd pull the photos off to my little travel netbook and let it copy the photos back home overnight.
If anything had happened to my laptop's drive while we were away, we wouldn't have lost our photos of our kids enjoying their holiday.Finally, the ultimate reason I run backups through my little low-power server is that it's basically just a cache.
It's set up to copy everything over to a machine at work during the wee hours of the morning, giving me physical separation of our data and the backup. The little server then trickles data out at our miserable 1Mbit upload speed, taking as long as it needs to to get the job done. That way, I don't have to leave my power-hungry desktop machine on for long periods of time while waiting for backups to complete, which is really useful.As to where our media files come from, we have a couple of hundred GB of photos, perhaps a little more in music (all ripped from our CDs, which lurk in the bottom of a cupboard these days) and maybe 700GB of movies and the likes (ripped from our DVDs which are the CDs' neighbours).
