    Hi All:

    I recently purchased airport extreme and I have extended my wifi using airport express. All printers and others are working fine. The problem is I can't able to share multiple hard drive on my network.

    I have connected my 1gb flash drive (Fat32) and I also connected 2tb WD hard drive (FAT32), now I can see both the hard drive on my computer (network)but when I click to access each drive I can only able to access 1gb flash drive I can't able to connect to my 2tb hard disk. From all this it appears that my set up is right. AM I correct or do I have to change set up?Why? :(:confused:

    I have MAcbook 13.3, Toshiba (XP) and HP (Vista) computers.

    I will be happy if some one point me to right direction. Thanks!!

    No. I am using ordinary USB hub. I also tried with other 8 gb flash drive along with 1 gb flash drive and I can access both without any problem. The only problem getting is sharing big hard drive (I also tried with 80 gb hard drive). All hard drive R formatted with FAT 32.

    So you want me to try powered usb hub. Does it make any difference? How come I can share my printers and two usb flash drive connected via ordinary usb hub?

    Appreciate yr help. If you have any other suggestion let me know..
