    I setup my airport extreme and share two usb hard drives on it through the network. I have no problem on OS X accessing these drives through finder, but recently I installed Windows 7.

    Where do I go, or what process should I go through to access / mount these hard drives in Windows?

    the best solution i find is to install:
    AirPort Utility for Windows -

    once that is installed open that to select your AEBSn, click on the AirDisks tab (after selecting manual set up) to make sure it sees your drives and to enable AirDisks on your Windows install.

    there should be a task bar icon if im not mistaken even for W7 that you can right click and select connect to either or both drives and then they should show up as network storage where your other harddrives appear
