    Is it possible for me to see my external drives that are formatted as FAT32 on over my network? Currently my MBP cannot see the FAT32 drives that I have connected to my MP over my network.

    Yes it should not have any problems. When logging into the mac pro are you logging in under an administrator?

    Well the drive is connected to a mac. So it will be shared if you log in under an administrator. So you can see the main internal drive when you log in? just not the other drive?

    That is correct.

    I went to the apple support forums and did some searching and basically it was stated that this isnt possible without some other software (sharepoint?)

    I am just going to back the data up and reformat these drives.
