    I have an Apple Airport Extreme router and hooked up to it is a 250GB Lacie external USB drive...everything worked perfect until I got my new MacBook Pro...I cannot get the computer to recognize the hard drive on the network. I have checked all my settings in the Airport Disk Utility...its not coming up with the option to connect to the HD and enter my password.

    Any ideas?? :confused:


    Thanks!

    When you open Airport Utility does it show the hard drive is connected at all? Does the Airport Extreme activity light flash amber?

    It shows the name of the hard drive and the status light is green.

    Ok, and when you load Disk Utility, does it find the hard drive?

    How about on the Finder and you click on 'Network'? Does it show up?

    This is my setup;
    Qwest DSL modem router (disabled DHCP) - > AirPort Extreme base station (802.11n). It links to a LaCie d2 hard drive via USB and AirPort Express via WDS.

    I have 4 Macs connected wirelessly. If I installed the AirPort Utility and/or AirDisk Utility from the CD, it will discover the AirDisk automatically. Otherwise, I just click on Network, the LaCie d2 drive shows up and asks for username and password. It treats as a network drive.
