    I recently switched to Airport Extreme (AE). My setup is:

    MacBook Pro - Ethernet & Wireless to AE
    Macbook - wireless to AE
    PC - Ethernet to AE
    Two printers - USB to AE
    Seagate Hard Drive - USB to AE

    I can see and use both printers from all computers. I cannot see the hard drive (HD) from any computer. One possible bit of important info: Before, with my D-Link router, I was using the HD as shared from the PC and I could see it on all machines. All I did was move it directly to the AE. I also plugged the HD directly into my MacBook Pro and it works fine.

    Another Thing

    Hi everyone. Macyogi again:

    I forgot to add that I am using a powered USB Hub between the AE and my printers and HD.

    Is it recognized in the airport software? If not (or even if so) it may have to do with the format of the drive. I forget off hand which formats (e.g. FAT32, HFS) the base station supports.

    Thanks for your reply. FYI, it is a Seagate 300 GB, P/N 9Y7865-560.

    It shows up in the Airport utility's disks tab as:

    279.5 GB ST330063 1A 3.04

    But I cannot find it in the Finder. Any ideas?
