I’m having no luck trying to use the My Book Live with my new MacBook Air. I’ve been using it with a Windows 8 laptop, but I hate that computer and have upgraded (I hope) to the MacBook.
I have run the My Book Live set up for Mac download from the WD website, the drive appears under Shared in Finder, and I have folders (Music, Photos, Public, Smartware, TimemachineBackup), but no files appear in them.
What I want to do, primarily, is to house my photos and music in a way that’s easily accessible when I’m at home. Crucially I need to be able to manage iTunes with the music files and the iTunes library on the My Book - there’s a Sonos system using these files.
I haven’t used the My Cloud facility up to now and want to at some point, but it’s a secondary problem.
The MacBook is running OS X Yosemite 10.10.1. My network is a BTHub in the UK, and works well enough with the PC and the My Book.
Any suggestions very welcome!
