I just bought a My Book Live and I’ve set it up to use media on my PS3 and it’s working perfectly. Other than using it as a media server, I also wanted to use it to back up my iMac via Time Machine. This is the first time using Time Machine so I had to enable it and it went to a setup screen. Unfortunately, on set up it does not detect the My Book Live disk.
About my setup:
My iMac is wirelessly connected to a wireless modem (PK5000). My Book Live is connected to a wireless bridge that is hardwired into my PS3 and wirelessly connected to my modem. When turning on my iMac, My Book Live is not automatically detected, so I have to mount it manually, but afterward, all functions are normal. I’m starting up Time Machine setup after I’ve already mounted to My Book Live.
Please help and thank you for your time.
