I have been pouring over forums and I see a lot of useful information but admittedly I am a newby and in need of step by step guidance so I apologize in advance.


I have a MacBook Pro (late 2010, so no airplay), Apple Tv(3rd generation) and a new WD My Book Live.


In a nutshell (sorta)  I purchased the My Book Live in hope to transfer itunes media.  The MacBook Pro has far too much on it, time to go to a larger storage device.  Then I was hoping to be able to view the media from the My Book Live via my Apple Tv (photos, movies, music etc).


1) How do I relocate my itunes media onto the My Book Live?


2) Is there a way to make the media on the My Book Live viewable on my Apple Tv?


I believe Alley_Cat made reference to possible solutions for this sort of question but I will be honest and admit I am having trouble following


Thank you in advance, any input and guidance is GREATLY appreciated.



MacBook Pro (Mountain Lion), Apple Tv (3rd generation), Ipad 2, Iphone 5, WD My Book Live.
