    Basically, I need to create a Media Drive Using my Airport Extreme Base station and my WD My Book External Hard Drive. Ive plugged the Ext. HD into the Base Station, but Non of the Windows Computers in My house can pick it up, But my I mac Works fine with it.

    I need This so I can Stream Media from the Ext. HD to XBMC, Without having Any Computers on.

    Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks!

    Have you read this support document? It gives you 3 options for Windows...

    Second way worked great, Now i have it on all my windows Pc's :)

    Now i need to figure out how to get it to work with XBMC (For my Jailbroken Apple TV 2G to steam media without My computer being on, Or having itunes open).
