Hmm... Pretty much what I already tried.
I get a message... Cannot connect. I know it must work because I tried it with the progoplug website and it saw the files. I just can't access it without progoplug's website. I want to be able to access it anytime the normal way - as a networked drive.

Real info is hard to find, but I suspect it's Internet only, I see no mention of local use...
I'd ask them...

I just had a scary email from these people....
Thank you for the update.
Unfortunately, it is not possible , since Pogoplug does not Support network drives.
Moreover, using our Diagnostic tool I was able to see your device offline.
Please bring your device online in order to make it accessible from your computer.
She can see through the firewall on my router! That says something about firewalls!
I'm taking it back to Walmart.

Yeah, get a descent local backup drive, Firewire if your MacBook has that, USB2 if not... then a decent backup APP...
Get carbon copy cloner to make an exact copy of your old HD to the New one...
Or the most expensive one & my favorite, Tri-Backup...

Yeah... Got a pair of Toshiba 500GB drives from Walmart at the same time.
The fact I can't use that alleged network device without using proprietry software stinks. The fact they can see all my files stinks. That sounds like $39.95 worth of Trojan to me.
