    I recently purchase an Iomega UltraMax Plus Desktop Hard Drive. I decided to get this version as it has 3 usb and I would be using it for multiple devices. I plugged the USB into my airport extreme this evening and it didn't show up on as a shared drive. I tested a second external hdd on it and this worked fine. Can anyone explain to me why this has happened or how I can fix the problem.

    Is the drive formatted HFS+? Is it being shared in AirPort Utility under the Drives tab?
