a few months back I bought a MyBookLive 2TB. Back then I was using it with Windows and everything worked without any problems. About a week ago I moved to using a Mac (OS is Mountain Lion). Here’s the problem that appeared:
The Quickview software from WD in my ‘taskbar’ doesn’t show the MyBookLive. I can mount it without any problems though. I can browse it as well, without issues. The TimeMachine app also does not find the MyBookLive when I try setting up a backup (the backup feature is enabled on the MyBookLive).
When I restart the MyBookLive it appears in both QuickView and TimeMachine.
The same happens if I disable the backup feature on the MyBookLive and then re-enable it. I’m assuming it has to do something with the extended ‘Saving…’ message - I guess it’s restarting a service or something and that fixes it.
However, once I restart my mac the MyBookLive is again not displayed in both QuickView and TimeMachine.
Has anybody had similar issues?
I would be very grateful if anybody provides a solutiion or at least some guidance!
