I'm looking to buy soon for a trip coming up. Want a bunch of movies and shows. I was thinking of putting ssd in cause for the trip i think it'll be safer for data with no moving parts. Is it easy to swap out the Hard drive? I'm looking to stream mp4s converted using handbreak to ipad. I've been reading alot of posts about the goflex satelite not working, is this a common thing?
If I understand you correctly my answer would be that it is a wifi hard drive and it doesn't physically connect to your device. It sends a wireless signal to it. The device has limitations but works fine as long as you adapt to its limitations, install the new firmware, and safely disconnect it when youre done adding media to it or organizing the media on it with your computer.
