    Okay, you don't have to beat me into submission, Apple. I give up.

    Tonight I removed the USB 2.0 500 GB drive from my Airport Extreme (n) Base Station, and re-attached it to my iMac. Since then:

    • No more inappropriate syncs.
    • The ability to use Airtunes via Airport Express.
    • No more lost libraries for my wife or for me.

    AirDisk?

    FEH!

    I found the AirDisk feature to be completely useless on the AEBS. I ended up getting a refurb Mac Mini as a 'server' for my iTunes/shares/printers/etc...

    I do the same thing, except for printers which seems to work fine via AEBS.

    Maybe I'm the only one who found it flawless...still running fine for me, only two people using it actively. Maybe that has some impact.

    i only use a 1GB usb stick on my AEBS. it's a quite convenient way to share files between my 2 windows comps and my two macs. for everything else i use a firewire 800 external on my main mac.

    Are you running Leopard on your Macs?

    Do you store and large files with it? I guess it would be ok for the occasional document or spreadsheet, but it just doesn't cut it for large files.
