What problems did you have with your NexTO? I have almost 20GB of Galapagos images on mine, all of them loaded quickly and smoothly. Am shocked to find our twin CPU Powermac G4, running OS 10.3.9 would not complete booting with the NextTO plugged in either through USB or Firwire, and that it would not come up on the desktop when I attmpted to mount it later. The system profiler and disk utility also did not help: just went into eternal spin.
Am also puzzled. because it seemed to work fine, when I tested it briefly before I left and because it seems to mount fine, using USB, on out PC.
