    I tried connecting my 500 GB MyBook Essential Edition external to the Airport Extreme Base station and the drives don't mount up on my Macbook!

    The only way I can access the files are through file sharing where they show under "shared".

    I tried formatting it and repairing it but no avail. Anyone here who had similar problems and found a fix for this?

    Hey Doc Doom do you happen to have the same drive? If so, does yours goes to standby or does it stay on(steady state) 24/7?
