It's a WiFi drive -- not Bluetooth. And if I remember, one can also use a browser, in addition to the app, to access files.

From what I can tell, it creates it's own hotspot so that you can stream anywhere, you don't need to transfer files from the hard drive to the kindle.

The Seagate IS its own wifi hotspot. Think of it as a mini router and hard disk combined.

Simply install the Seagate app on the Fire, turn the Seagate on and wait until you see the wifi ready light. Turn on the wifi on your Fire, connect to the "GoFlex" (or whatever you see in the available networks list), open the app on your Fire and it will display a file explorer. I think you are confusing wifi with internet. You are NOT connecting to the internet -- you are connecting directly to the Seagate via its own separate wifi signal.

You can assign your own "network" name to the drive and select WPA2 encryption -- highly recommended if you plan to use the drive away from your home.

Keep in mind that the GoFlex does not allow simultaneous use of the drive and the internet, with multiple devices. The newer model , Seagate Wireless Plus does offer this and allows connection of eight devices simultaneously. I have both models and they are excellent for transferring/streaming files.

I mean no disrespect, but a little research on wireless drives would have been useful prior to making a purchase. At the very least, reading the included documentation (or online) will suffice.

You are welcome. I've always found product manuals available on the manufacturers' websites -- you just have to look for support or documentation links. As I said, Google is your friend.

Ahh,

Some of us here may have some very old and fond memory's of tech manuals that were written in Chinese then in turn translated into Japanese.

Which in turn were translated into at least one other language before it was finally translated into English by someone recovering from a one week binge and has the 'mother' of all hangover's.





And they thought translating Egyptian hieroglyphics or Mayan glyphs was hard!
