"Don't come close to the MioNet software"2.5 starson by amitaip
Pros: The disk itself works fine
Cons: The MioNet software is terrible. How WD bundled it?
Summary: The only way to work is to map MyBook as a network drive. I worked with MioNet support team for days. E-mails and phone calls. They were very responsive but they couldn't help me at all! The MioNet software turned "offine" and that was it! It was a torture! I spent hours on hours on this! In the end, MioNet support helped me do a direct mapping and that's how it works for me.
Even when the connection was active via MioNet it disconnected every few minutes.
Files that you copied via MioNet are readonly when you access through direct mapping.
I don't understand how a respectable company such as Western Digital put their faith on this lousy software. If you just put the CD in and click 'next-next' you end up with something that doesn't work. Or works for one day. and disconnects.
I have never seen something like that in my whole life.
I also can't understand CNET review which praises the MioNet software (WD Anywhere Access). You should work with more than three minutes! I will not believe your reviews anymore!Updated
I don't understand how a company such as Western Digital bundled this awfull software. If you put the attached CD in, click next,next - it may seem to work - but then it turns offline, and disconnects every few minutes.

WD are going to get into real trouble with this MioNet adventure.
It's a pitty. Because I now use the disk over LAN and it works great.
