    Hello everyone, did a search and couldn't find anything that solved my problem , so here I am! Anyway here is my set

    -15" i5 mbp
    - Airport extreme base station
    - 1tb (mac os journled) WD Mybook (or whatever they are called)
    - file sharing under airport utility is turned on

    I can't see the drive either in the list of available drives in the airport utility setup, or in any side panel. I plugged the drive in via USB directly to the laptop and it recognized it fine to use for time machine...

    Any help? Thanks!

    Don't mean to screw up your threat newConvert but I saw in another thread that you were going to buy that MDP to HDMI adapter..just wondering if you did and if it works. Thanks

    I have the original simultaneous dual band Extreme and it sucks.

    It disconnects the USB drive frequently, so that it has corrupted it several times.

    If the drive doesn't mount it might be corrupted, but then Airport Utility should warn about this, and the light should be yellow.
