on some modem/routers access control by MAC addresses is only available for wireless connections... each network interface usually has an unique MAC address, however spoofing is possible on a lot of hardware... so if someone has gained access to your router, maybe they know your MAC addresses anyway...

I have looked through the supplied documentation and can't find any information about wether it has a sleep mode or not. Sorry, I'm not that comp tech savy. Is sleep mode something the HD does by itself of does the comp tell the HD to go to sleep? Not sure where to look for this one. does your slow...

the quality of the interfaces in your computer and external drives can make a big difference... also, although USB2 has a faster superficial spec than FW400, the USB protocol has more inherent overheads than FW, so in practice (depending on your interfaces and access patterns) FW400 tends be at leas...

hey

when you say "same thing happens with the FW400 interface", are you talking about the same HD?

most obvious thing that springs to mind is that you are waiting for your external HD to spin up from sleep mode...

also, have you tested the drive with some kinda diagnostics program?

do you read your mail online or offline? Apple Mail also has a very good trainable spam filter... of course if you can avoid having to download all the crap to your computer in the first place, even better... if you have to keep the address, probably the best you can do is to have the mail directed ...

i haven't personally done any tests, as i don't currently have a hard drive bandwidth problem (and if things ever got to that stage i'd get faster drives), but i think the crucial point is that how you are using your computer, and the pattern of HD access by your system and applications is absolutel...

lots of USB ports (macs tend to be firewire, PCs tend to be USB, the advantage of either is small and oft argued) this is true if you are talking about firewire 400, however firewire 800 is a lot faster... also good to remember that if you mix fw 400 and 800 devices on the same fw bus, the 800 devi...

bad idea...

i love being able to hit the general forum and do a quick skim of the active topics and pick and choose... encourages the art of subject titles too...

it would be absolutely hideous having dozens of sub-forums to navigate... i just wouldn't do it...
