I back up to a netdisk. It has been working well for a year. Now, after a two week trip, Time Machine has been in a “Calculating Changes” mode. It has been four days, so I know something is wrong.

But what???

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6)

    What kind of "netdisk"? Is it a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, a Time Capsule, or what?

    See #A1 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting (or use the link in *User Tips* at the top of this forum) for a handy widget that will display the backup messages from your logs. Copy and post them here.

    Disk is a Western Digital MyBook World Edition, connected in this case directly by wired cat5.

    The log via the indicated widget after eight hours is:

    This is saying that your NAS doesn't support some of the requirements of Time Machine on Snow Leopard. See if WD has a software/firmware update for it.

    See #6 in Formatting, Partitioning, Verifying, and Repairing Disks.

    Also do the things in #D2 of Time Machine - Troubleshooting (or use the link in *User Tips* at the top of this forum).
