I’m not very adept at this sort of thing. I have an intel based iMac. and have had an myBook acting as my Time Machine on it. The My Book is about 3 years old and has worked fine until now.
I moved and packed up and moved all my electronic things myself. I plugged everything in yesterday and it all worked like a charm. Even the MyBook as Time Machine backed things up.
Then this morning I got an error when Time Machine tried to back up. I ejected the My Book powered everything down plugged it all in and the My Book blue light on the front blinks, then is steady then blinks. But its not working as Time Machine.
In my Finder it shows up as WD Smartbook under devices. But when I click on the Time Machine icon at the top left corner of my desk top it says there is no time machine device?
Is the Mybook dead?
