    Okay so when you have TC or AEBS and have a usb hard drive hooked up to it.

    What is the difference between going to Finder and doing a Connect To Server to map the drive versus having it show an AirDisk?

    Somehow I just cannot have my external drive show up as an AirDisk.

    i just enable file sharing on the AEBSn in AirPort Utility and then i get a icon of my AEBSn in a FInder Window on the left and am able to access the drive directly without having to connect to it and it automatically shows up.

    if thats what your trying to get...
