Preserve your precious memories with this ideal combination of elegant, reliable storage and automatic backup features.
Your baby's first step, your wedding in Bali, all your important milestones - all captured in digital photos and video. What could be more important? Store them safely and keep them backed up on My Book Home Edition external hard drives.
What it holds:
Easy to set up, easy to use - Installation is a snap because you don't really install this drive, you just plug it in and it's ready to use. There is no CD to install; the included software loads from the drive the first time you plug it in.
Automatic backup - Save a copy of your photos to an online sharing service, duplicate your e-mail and contacts to your iPod, and back up all your precious files to your My Book. Set it and forget it; every time you save something it's automatically backed up.
Fits right in - Takes no more space than a paperback book. Collect two or more and they nest neatly together like volumes on a shelf.
Capacity gauge - See at a glance how much space is available on your drive. (Works with the USB and FireWire connections only.)
Smart and energy efficient - Turns itself on and off with your computer.
PC and Mac compatible - Works with Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later.
Comments about Western Digital Western Digital My Book Home Edition 750GB External Hard Drive:
Use this for digital photo file storage.
NOT ready for Vista although it works. NO downloads for Vista yet. Until this is corrected, user must "play" with accessing WD Mgr each time booting up computer; a pain!
If you have or can get the new eSata card, get it. Way faster than Firewire or USB. Probably the only reason I bought this was for its eSata capability.
