I got a WD Sharepace NAS and it is formatted in their proprietary SAMBA file structure, which they said will work with a MAC just fine, but iPhoto keeps giving me an “X” when I double click on a photo. I can see the events, see all the thumbnails in any specific event, but when I go to double click the photo to view it, I get a big “X”. Also, iPhoto is INCREDIBLY SLOW AND UNRESPONSIVE. In fact, my entire Mac slows down. Do I need to reformat the drive to Mac OS Extended (Journaled)? By the way, I have a Mac Mini, 1.83 GHz, 1 GB Memory, and am running Snow Leopard 10.6.1.
