Today’s firmware update was supposed to include compatibiility with Apple OS X Lion/10.7 and while my My Book World Edition seems to work fine after applying the update, I’m not able to use it with Time Machine.
After updating the firmware, I shut down the drive, restarted my computer, and started the drive again.
When I try to turn select my WD_Backup share for Time Machine, I’m prompted to log in, after which I get the following error message:
Time Machine can't access the backup disk "WD_Backup". The operation couldn't be completed. (OSStatus error 2.)
When I look at my My Book World Edition’s system log, I see the following concurrent errors:
09/13 20:10:39 MediaDrive daemon.notice afpd: AFP3.3 Login by andrew 09/13 20:10:40 MediaDrive daemon.notice afpd: AFP logout by andrew 09/13 20:10:40 MediaDrive daemon.err afpd: dsi_stream_read: len:0, unexpected EOF 09/13 20:10:40 MediaDrive daemon.notice afpd: afp_over_dsi: client logged out, terminating DSI session 09/13 20:10:40 MediaDrive daemon.notice afpd: AFP statistics: 0.64 KB read, 0.50 KB written
I know there seem to be some more widespread problems applying the updated firmware, but I think I’ve sidestepped those and am not sure how close I am to being able to use my My Book World Edition with Time Machine for the first time since I bought it!
