My Book World Edition not compatible with 10.7 Lion. It appears the issue here is a different version of Netatalk in Lion and one of the libraries it uses for authentication. I'm wondering when he and IF an updated version of Netatalk will be included in a firmware upgrade, or if these devices are not going to be supported by WD for Lion and the community will have to compile a solution?

I have the same problem. It looks like this issue has been known to WD for several months, but they were waiting for Lion to be released. That's happened.
WD, will this problem be addressed via a firmware update and when will that be released?
In the meantime, my backup/restore functionality on my Mac is disabled, and I need to get this addressed before I upgrade to Lion (which I've already purchased).

Same Problem to me, the following Message appears whren i try to make a Backup: (German) Die Version des Servers, zu dem eine Verbindung hergestellt werden soll, wird nicht unterstützt. Wenden Sie sich zur Behebung des Problems an Ihren Systemadministrator.
So WD go forward to solve this Problem fast, please.

This is far from an ideal solution, but it is at least a solution. I recognize that it won't be acceptable to some, even as a temporary solution. It will work for me for the short term, but I really hope WD can fix this fast.
Now you should be able to connect to your MBWE as Guest and access your shares.
As I said, not an ideal solution, but it's working for me. I installed Lion before knowing about this problem, and I have files on my MBWE that I simply can't lose access too, even for a short period.

I understand that you guys are frustrated but, you have to give WD a chance, imagine that im running linux and i have no support at all...lets just give this guys a few days to see what they come up with

This is an issue for me too. Just upgraded to Lion and now my MyBook World won't function as a Time Machine disk. The error I got is:
The version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported. Please contact your system administrator to resolve the problem.

Same problem here, naturally. I'd be more likely to remain patient if a WD employee posted a commitment to release an update in these forums. I understand that release will need to be prioritized against other work but saying nothing will only amplify the community's anxiety.

I had the same issue and hopefully it get's fixed through a firmware upgrade. In the meantime there is a very good workaround described here that worked perfectly for me:
