Network MyBook Live drive does not apppear in Win 7 Pro Homegroup

Network MyBook Live drive does not apppear in Win 7 Pro Homegroup 'Earthrise' PC Windows Explorer.

Referencing page 2 of attached 'Office Network Connections - NoPassword.pdf', Drive M [1 Tb MyBook Live] appears on network connections diagram but is not available in Windows Explorer [See page 4 for complete Office Network].

Why not?

I want to use the MyBook Live drive with Win 7 Windows Backup or Acronis 12 Backup for 'Earthrise'. MyBook Live drive works OK with 'Neutrino'.

Try going to control panel, network and sharing center, advanced sharing settings and turn on network discovery.

Following this path and poking (clicking actually) around, I was able to reach the MyBook LIve control panel and eventually discover that Acronis 12 has access to this drive. As this is what I wanted, I accept the answer as a start in the right direction.
