    Hello everybody,
    My question is :
    can i use a HARD DISK with airport express ?
    I love the airtunes, I think i will use it a lot.
    In another hand I also love time capsule, but I think that is too expensive. I really think that we can find more cheaper 500Gb or 1Tb now, and just because they added airport extreme in it, I don't think it has to be that expensive.
    Or another question : can I use airtunes with time-capsule or air port-express ? (because I think that we can conect a HD with airport express isn-it ?
    Thank you very very much.

    The USB is only meant for use with printers (see 'Interfaces'). You can physically connect a drive to the port but neither your Mac nor the Express will treat it like a network drive. The Extreme and the Time Capsule are the only Apple wireless products that you can connect a drive to and have it be treated as a network drive.
