    Okay this is ticking me off!

    I know in 10.6.8 I could share a usb drive that was formatted fat32 over my network.

    Now this is broken in 10.7

    How do I fix this?

    I know how to share files over lan and I can get folders I make to work just fine.

    But anything on my fat32 drive failes to show up on other computers.
    Now before you say "Well just format the drive to hfs+"
    I have no place to store the files to do that. and i am not deleting any thing off the usb. Plus this worked in 10.6

    Why did this even break?

    Whats the fix?
    I can not even set who can read or write over the network to the drive.
