No. Time Machine cannot back up FROM any network disk.

Hooking up the disk is not the problem. The disk does not show up in time machine, so it doesn't get backed up. I also tried memeo backup and there are permission problems connecting to and backing up the photo disk.
Any help out there?

Log on to the disk from the finder and it will appear avaliable in time machine. Although every time I have tried it has failed, but I think i did something wrong. Tell me how yours goes

Yes, connect a USB hub to the AE and then the HDDs to the hub and you're good to go.
