How to move videos, music, and files wirelessly to Wireless Plus on a Mac

Provides instructions for wirelessly adding content to Wireless Plus in MacOS.

Please follow this procedure to load content wirelessly onto your Wireless Plus device in MacOS using SAMBA. The device must be connected to your computer via Wi-Fi before proceeding:

  1. Power on the Wireless Plus device.
  2. Open your wireless access menu in the right hand side of the Apple bar.

  3. Select the Wireless Plus drive and enter a password if you have set one up.
  4. Select Go, then Connect to Server.

  5. Type in cifs://

  6. Select Guest and press Connect.

    Once the connection is complete, the Wireless Plus device mounts on the Desktop.
  7. Drag and drop your media files to the drive.

Please note that transferring large files or many files wirelessly may result in low performance. If you are moving large files or many files to the Wireless Plus, Seagate recommends you connect directly to the Mac using the included USB adapter and cable.

Also, the Wireless Plus or GoFlex Satellite drive will have to create an index of the files on the drive in order to display them properly. It may take a few hours to build the entire index, depending on how much data you added to the drive. The drive will not be able to begin indexing until it is disconnected from the computer and powered on.
