Time Machine

I have two Macs running Leopard and both connect to a 1TB Time Machine.  One makes backups just fine, while I cannot get the other to make backups to the same 1TB Drive.  What should I do?

I suggest you attach the second Mac to the time machine using a Cat5e or Cat6 ethernet cable and then pull down the Time Machine menu and start a back up.

I keep getting the same error:  THE BACKUP DISK IMAGE COULD NOT BE MOUNTED.

Did you in fact at one time have a backup from that Mac?

No I did not, I'd like to backup both to the 1TB Drive.  This is a new install of Leopard on a Mac.

In that case, pull down the Time Machine Menu to Open Time Machine Prefs. and click on Change Disk and select your Time Machine drive.
