    I have an external hdd plugged into my AEBS, I see the external hdd in Airport Utility but not in Finder. When I click on my AEBS in Finders left pane, nothing is in the right pane and it says Not Connected at top. I formatted the drive Mac OS Extended (journaled). Im trying to use it with Time Machine. It is not a powered drive, its a 2.5" usb powered drive, is that my problem? Airport Utility sees it, so I figured I would be OK.

    Did you go into the AEBS with Airport Utility and 'share' the connected hard drive (through the airport Utility, Manual setup?

    In Airport Utility, under Disks, Enable File Sharing is checked. Thanks
