I already posted this in Mac Peripherals, but didn't get any help... I'm wondering if anyone who checks this forum will be more helpful. So... sorry for posting in the wrong forum. I have a 500GB HFS+ formatted MyBook external drive connected to my AEBS. When it's working, it works fine... everything is groovy. But I will get periodic drop outs... usually when using something on the external (ie, watching a video that is on it), but sometimes when I'm not using it at all, I'll come back and I'll get the same message. Something about connection being lost, and forcing me to "Disconnect" When I "Disconnect" however, it obviously is not ejecting the drive properly. If I go into Finder, the drive is no longer there, BUT, if I go into Volumes through the terminal, it's there.... "My Book" and then it's like every time I've tried to connect since being disconnected I get a "My Book-1", "My Book-2", etc. I've tried doing rm -r to get rid of the original one before attempting to connect again, but that still doesn't work... just another empty "My Book" volume shows up in the terminal. The only way I can get it back is to plug in the drive directly to my machine, eject it properly, and then plug it back into the AEBS. This is ridiculously annoying. The AEBS was expensive and it should work... but it just doesn't. Anyone else having issues like this? Any advice? BTW... my AEBS is version 7.2. I had 7.2.1, but someone on here advised me to go back to 7.2... this worked for a little while, but now I'm back to this problem again. Help me out!
