I just bought a WD mybookworld II as a NAS and backup drive. I transferred my itunes library to the wd (took 12hours for 36GB). Afterwards, the wd appears in itunes, but cannot connect to the library. The message I get is " allow communication on port 3689". I do not know what I have to do allow communication. I disabled the firewall, but I still cannot connect. I appreciate any suggestions how to solve the problem.

iMac intel, Mac OS X (10.6.2), wd worldbook II with newest firmware update

    Try repairing permissions...

    Quit any open applications/programs. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.

    Thanks I will give it a try, but first have to wait until a time machine backup to the nas has finished. It seems to last for days for 90 gb

    Unfortunately, it did not help. I always get the message error- 3260. Please check your firewall etc...Any other suggestions?
    I highly appreciate any suggestions

    Can't be done on a NAS drive.

    An iTunes library must be installed on a drive formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
