    I have a 500 gb Lacie external hooked up to my Airport Extreme basestation. This works flawlessly with Time Machine after the disk is mounted.

    However, the external drive won't mount unless I unplug it and then plug it back in.

    Is there another way to get it to mount automatically?

    I normally shut off the iMac at night along with the Airport and external drive. In the morning I turn everything on. The Airport and internet work fine.

    I am running the latest Airport Utility (5.3.1), AirPort Disk Utility (1.2.1), Leopard version (10.5.2), and firmware. I have enabled "Automatically discover AirPort Disks." I have tried restarting the iMac.

    I gave up on AirDisk after struggling with its issues in 10.5.0 and 10.5.1. I don't know if it's been resolved, but it sounds like it hasn't.
