Hi everyone, been trying to get this to work for a while without success so now starting from scratch. Connecting 500GB Freeagent HD to AEBS to use for both time machine backups and general storage. However want to use general storage for both mac and pc. Plan to partition the hard drive - and can't find a definitive answer on which format to use for each partition. Does anyone have a solution that works? Final question, has anyone got a Brother 2030 to work with AEBS, doesn't appear to be supported! Thanks for all you help.
