Which external hard drive did you get ?Digik9, apologies for the delay getting back to you, just got back from vacation in Cuba. In answer to your question, everything is working great so far on the Aspen with the external storage gear I picked up from Memory Express. If you did pick up the same gear then I'm guessing it's working ok for you as well by this point?
We're loving the extra space so far and let me know how the Aspen is working for you. Cheers!
