Hi,

I recently purchased my first Network Attached Storage Device, A 2TB Lacie ethernet big disk. I bought it primarily for storing and sharing my media over the network throughout my house. However I found that the FILE transfer process is ridiculously slow.

Currently I open and login to the drive on windows explore, and drag and drop the files I want. However the file transfer process seems slow. Is there a better way to transfer files to a nas or is this it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi There

What type of cable is attached and what is it attached to? Also can you verify what speed the interface is set at?

Hi There

Don't always assume that. Ethernet can be 10/100/1000 mbps although the default is to auto-negotiate. Manually set both ends at the highest they are designed to go.

Hi There

Does the drive come with some sort of control panel?
