Alright, I may revise my statement to instead say that the ethernet only version of this drive does not seem to be an ideal candidate

okay that is where my confusion came from, I have the 500GB USB version, I didn't know there was a ethernet only version...
like JimmyGos, I just reformatted into ext3 and plugged it in...
Asus M2NSLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64 X2 BE-2400 2.3GHz
Asus EN6200TC512 Graphic Card
WinTV PVR-150 MCE

Well, that's the difference between world and essential edition.

BUT, I have now had my ethernet WD up for 2 days without any kind of trouble. Just wanted to say that. I am now running 7.10b4, my last try was with the 7.04. I do not know why, but my previous problems are gone :-). I have played movies from it (but just short bits) and transfered about 200GB to it and it has never disappeared from the network.

 My SPDIF is even working so now, so I finally have the opportunity to use this great system!!

Well that's promising.  I'm on b3 right now, perhaps after the upgrade...
