    I would like to have my macbook pro access a USB hard drive that my mac mini is using. is this possible? if so how can you do it? My idea is:

    Hard-drive->mac mini->router->macbookpro

    I think the initial problem is you asked "is it possible". The answer to that is a simple "yes."

    How to do it is a separate question. Off the top of my head, I don't know the steps.

    Hopefully someone will chime in with the "how" answer.
