    I have purchased a brand new 4th Gen 2Tb Time Capsule from Apple. I set it up to join my existing home wireless network, and it has done so with no problems. (Green light on the unit..) When I try to wirelessly backup my iMAC (Snow Leopard 10.6.8), time machine gets stuck on "making backup disk available" and nothing happens.

    Any ideas?

    I'd suggest connecting your computer to the Time Capsule via Ethernet for your first backup. It may solve the issue (hopefully) and it will take significantly less time to complete the backup versus wirelessly.
