    Hey guys, I just bought a 3TB ioSafe drive and plugged it into my Airport Extreme. At first it didn't show so I reformatted it as a HFS Mac OS X Journaled drive. Now it shows up in the Airport Utility, but it won't show in Finder. Any ideas how to make it appear in Finder?

    ioSafe says it's designed to work with Airport Extreme, so it should work fine, but I'm just not sure what to do next since I've already formatted it properly.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks! But what is the Airport Disk Utility? I only see Airport Utility or Disk Utility but not one called Airport Disk Utility. I can not find the "Show AirPort Disks" option to toggle.


    Son of a gun! Turns out the Shared column in the Finder windows was toggled to "hide." I clicked "show" and now it shows! :p
