I bought a new “My Book World Edition” on the understanding that it would work with Time Machine on my MacBook Pro. See attached image.
After adding the device to the network I can see it and add it to my machine - I can browse the drive etc… lovely. Thing is, when I try add it as a drive to Time Machine (“Select Backup Drive”), Time Machine is not able to find it. It appears as though Time Machine will only work with an AirPort wireless device, so I get an “… unable to find …” error message.
So… in what way exactly is my new “My Book World Edition” compatible with MacOS Time Machine? Looks like I’ve just flushed 100 euro down the toilet if I can’t use it for the purpose for which I bought it.
