Hi, I have bought two GoFlex Home Network Drives and want to connect them both to my Mac via an Ethernet cable (Not via my wireless modem router - as the transfer of data as proved too slow / unstable - keeps losing the connection).
So, I have got a Network five port box connected to my Mac and both drives connected to the network port box.
Switch on one of the drives, my Mac finds it and lists it in Finder as GoFlex Home, I can then connect to one drive. However, switch on the other drive and my Mac doesn't list in Finder the other drive. The drives are both OK. I can link one drive at a time, but seemingly not both at the same time.
The reason I want to run two is so I release space off my Mac's harddrive, put my files on one of the GoFlex drives and use the other as a backup drive.
Hoping there's a genius on the forum that can guide me to twin drive happiness!
