  • Doesn't stream iTunes films with iOS8

    1.0 out of 5 stars

I spent several hours trying to stream some of my iTunes films and TV shows. Finally I contacted SanDisk chat support; they told me ..."We appreciate you reporting the issue. Our Engineering team is already working with Apple to resolve it. Please watch for any iOS and WMD or WFD application updates."

    I believe Apple shouldn't sell products that are not compatible with current iOS, this causes lots of frustration and waste of time.

  • Great device; perfect for road trips and vacations

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I bought this device, as my own personal media server, with two goals in mind -- first, when on vacation, I wanted a way to share I bought this device, as my own personal media server, with two goals in mind -- first, when on vacation, I wanted a way to share photos with the other people I traveled with, and second, with a family of five that is often on long flights or road trips, I wanted a central media hub for storing and accessing movie and music files for viewing between multiple iPads. Now, instead of having to load content on each particular device, such as music, movies or books, I can throw everything onto the Media drive and let them access what each person wants. I bought this model over the Wireless USB Flash Drive, primarily because of the SD card slot, which makes it easy to add storage, use multiple SD cards to manage larger files, and most importantly, it makes transferring photos painless.

    For my purposes, this device has been great. I've had it for about 6 months now, and haven't had the difficulties or set up issues that some of the other reviewed mentioned. Battery life on the device is fantastic. I've had three users stream three different movies all at once, with zero latency issues.

    Fantastic product.

  • Really Cool, but setup can be tricky

    This is a really cool little device. I'm sure it will be perfect as a traveling external drive, but I did have some issues with s This is a really cool little device. I'm sure it will be perfect as a traveling external drive, but I did have some issues with setting it up. The free app for the iPhone can be used for setup but when setting up your wi-fi access you should know there are a few restrictions that I discovered.

    1) You can't use the '-' character in your wi-fi name, so if you call your network "My wi-fi" it won't work, it will need to be "My wifi" instead.

    2) If you use the app to set up your device you can't use special characters in the first password field but you can in the second one that is used to verify the first field. The character I had trouble with was the '@' symbol. I could enter this as part of my password when I set up the wi-fi while connected via USB but then couldn't login with my iPhone because the app can't use the symbol in a password for some odd reason.

    3) I have no trouble now connecting to the device now that I have discovered items 1 and 2, but I have yet to get the device to connect and share my primary wi-fi network. I'm suspecting that this is because I keep my wi-fi hidden so once the device restarts it does not 'detect' the connection so therefore will not automatically connect to it. (It could at least try occasionally.) So don't try to connect it to a hidden wi-fi network. **I just tested this theory and it is correct. It won't try to connect to a hidden wi-fi connection.

    This thing is really awesome though and I look forward to playing with it, it fits in the palm of my hand and will be an awesome way to keep my files with me wherever I go.

  • Can't play purchased movies.

    I wish I'd read the former reviews on this. When I visited the Apple Store they recommended the Sandisk device so I bought it so I wish I'd read the former reviews on this. When I visited the Apple Store they recommended the Sandisk device so I bought it so that the kids could watch movies without filling up the ipad. This is completely waste of time since apple have blocked bought films to be played from a media device such as this.
    I'm going to have to send it back now for a refund.
    Apple, get your act together as I'm starting to consider other suppliers.

    Completely unintuitive to use. Painfully slow.

  • Apple iTunes content not useable

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    As of now Apple purchased iTunes DRM movies are not playing on any Apple devices, synced to one iTunes account, over any wifi enab As of now Apple purchased iTunes DRM movies are not playing on any Apple devices, synced to one iTunes account, over any wifi enabled external storage device. The use and ability to watch those movies are restricted to the space you have on your devices. The apparent reason is the inability of the Safari browser, necessary to play those movies, to identify and translate the protective code, DRM, embedded in those movies as your own purchased movies.
    No one at Apple Support seems to even know about this, on the other hand I haven't gotten an answer to my request if there is anything you can do if your devices are out of storage capacity and you are in a "wifi dead-zone", which makes me believe that they very well know about this.
    Here is the deal, inform your customers when their purchased Apple iTunes content is watchable at any given time on any synced Apple device. Right now they are the proverbial brick. This is a 1-star experience for Apple not the SanDisk device which I can not rate due to the failure of Apple.
