    Is anyone else having problems accessing their airport extreme shared HDD with Leopard ?

    I don't want to Force Quit Finder each time just to be able to access it.

    You want crazy?

    Under Leopard I can't see my Airport, but I can see the Drobo attached. How does that work?

    Are you on 10.5.1?

    I had a lot of problems with my Airport Disk, but it seems to be fine now. Although there is the odd occasion where it will only let me connect to one of my Airport Disks.

    I wish they would fix the performance, sometimes the transfer rate is stupidly slow.

    I had the same problem until I upgraded to 10.5.1, now it seems fine.

    I am having the same problems and I am using 10.5.1. I got it working once, but after I put the Macbook to sleep and woke it back up the connection was gone. I have also yet been able to print through the airport as well.

    Should I clear everything out and redo. I've reconfigured the base station several time but that doesn't help.

    I am experiencing the same problem.

    I have a MacBook with 10.5.1 and an Airport Extreme (not Gigabit version) trying to connect to a 750Gb MiniStack USB HDD via Airport's USB.

    I read in the apple support forum that many users are experiencing this problem with both versions of the Airport Extreme.

    It's a very frustrating problem.:mad:

    Some users recommend to downgrade the firmware version of the Airport Extreme to get rid of the problem. I haven't t try it that.:confused:

    I hope a solution shows up soon.

    Any Happy Airport Extreme user that can access their shared USB HDD???

    Also having problems here. It's very inconsistent. I can usually see the drives attached but can not open them to browse the files.

    I also can't see my files, with AExpress firmware 7.2.1 and OS X 10.5.2.

    Since 10.5.2, I've had no problems with AirDisk.

    AirDisk now working

    I couldn't be happier!

    I am not sure what make it work, but this is what I did 2 days ago:
    - Clean Leopard install on my Intel MacBook late '06 2.0Ghz
    - Installed all the :apple: updates
    - Installed AirPort Utilities from the CD that came with my AEBS (non Gigabit)
    - Check updates: non needed.
    - Setup the AirDisk to access it with my User Password
    - Copied all my songs, movies and pictures to the AirDisk

    As of Today even after the MacBook goes to sleep, and after wakes up the AirDisk is there.
    :D

    How do you get leopard to automatically mount airport disks? Right now I have to go to network -> AEBS -> log on -> double click on hard drive.

    Under tiger I had something called airport disk utility which automatically mounted airport disks, I don't seem to have this under leopard.

    Thanks
