  • 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.

  • Doesn't stream iTunes films with iOS8

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I bought this item yesterday at the Apple Store. I spent several hours trying to stream some of my iTunes films and TV shows. Fina I bought this item yesterday at the Apple Store. 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

    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.

  • Wont play m4v on some IPads.......

    This product is a great way to increase storage and share content to all your devices. Works great with the file types supported. This product is a great way to increase storage and share content to all your devices. Works great with the file types supported. The native m4v format from iTunes, can be stored on the device. When access the app from other iPad I own, it does redirect you to the safari browser to stream the content. It works with IPad mini, and a first generation iPad. The only issue I have is that it doesn't work with the 4th generation IPad's for some reason. All IPads are on IOS 8.

  • This gadget is great! (Learn to use it before you gripe)

    I've had my 64gb for a few months now and it's been fantastic! Many reviewers on here clearly have not read up on how to properly I've had my 64gb for a few months now and it's been fantastic! Many reviewers on here clearly have not read up on how to properly use this device. You can, in fact, connect to the internet through this device. There is a way to play your movies through the app if you're simply on the same network without connecting to the device's wireless signal. Connect it to the Internet, change back to your main wireless router on the same network and you can play the movies through the app. I do this so that I don't have to keep switching back and forth to access other devices in my network.

    When I play mkv, avi, or other unsupported files through this device, it gives me the option to play them through other apps. I constantly watch mkv's through my VLC app with ease. It doesn't go to my browser like another reviewer said.

    The battery life on it is enough to watch at least 3 or 4 full length movies easily. The memory capacity is really good. I only wish they could have had a 128gb version. I did put a 64gb Sandisk Extreme SD card to expand though. Now I'm able to fit tons of movies on it. The overall size of this is perfect and takes up very little space.

    I do agree it's a little tricky to set up, but no gadget is dumb proof. If you're not technically inclined in this day and age, don't bother complaining about it. It's not that difficult.

    Connecting to iMac via USB works. Connecting via SanDisk wi-fi works using iPad Mini (older) and iPhone 6 (brand new), both using Connecting to iMac via USB works. Connecting via SanDisk wi-fi works using iPad Mini (older) and iPhone 6 (brand new), both using iOS 8.1. Can see files, including videos.

    Can play supplied .mp4's on both devices. Can play my own, non-protected, .mp4's on both devices.

    Cannot play .m4v (HD or SD) from either the iPad mini or iPhone 6. The .m4v's come purchased from iTunes. iTunes on the iMac is 12.0.1.26 (i.e., the latest). The apps on both mobile devices exit the SanDisk app and launch the browser to try to play the video. After that, everything hangs. I have no idea why. Could be a video format problem. Could be an iOS 8.1 problem. Could be a SanDisk app problem.

    Very disappointed. Leaving on a long international trip in a couple of days and not sure I can use it.
