I am running 10.6.2 on an iMac and using SD 2.6.2.

The task is to backup 'iTunes' to 'iTunes Backup'. The source is pretty big so I expected the initial run to be lengthy. All went well for an hour or so, with about 20G or so copied, and then SD said:

The backup and source devices are WD myBook external drives. Both have had the latest WD firmware patches installed.

Two questions: notice the time from 1039PM to 510AM. Not sure what was happening.
Second: I wonder what 'device not configured' means?

It means the backup drive likely failed - either the connection or the drive itself. You can restart your Mac, repair both, simplify connections and try again...
