Is the HD formatted as OS Extended? Does Airport Utility recognize the HD? Can you access the drive by selecting Go>Connect to server and entering in the IP of the base station (most likely 10.0.1.1)? What are the settings on your base station? Can other computers access the drive?
Answers to these questions might helpMacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 3, 2009 1:51 PM (in response to freezig)Drive came as FAT32 formated, and was not visible. Then I connected it directly to Mac and reformat the drive to GUID/OS extended. Then I did some tests with Drive genius2 and drive is working ok. Then connect to usb port on AE, open airport utility and drive is not there. I also downgraded firmware to 7.4.1, didn't help. I reformated the drive as Apple partition/OS extended, no luck. Reboot in Leopard, same story. Spoke with Freecom UK, and since drive works ok when connected directly to Mac, they don't give any further support. Guy mention that maybe SIZE is a problem. I also tried to format into two partitions of 750GB but that also didn't help. Drive is not recognized by Airport Extreme. I also tried to connect with Go..and typing IP address 10.0.1.1, no answer.
So, it is going back to the shop.2x2.8 Mac Pro, MBP 2.53, Iphone3GS, Mac OS X (10.6.1), Pro Tools
