I own a WD My Book 6TB external hard drive. The drive has 2 thunderbolts ports. I just bought the latest Airport Express, which has a USB 2.0 port.

 

Despite my search, I am not able to find any Thunderbolt to USB adapter. Is there any?

 

If not, can I do Thunderbolt to Firewire to USB?

 

Any other solutions that have been found or used?

 

Thank you.

You can't use the Express's USB port for a hard disk anyway.  Uses for the USB port of Time Capsule, AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express

OK thanks. The only product that I was interested in some time ago was this one: http://www.belkin.com/us/p/P-F4U055/ Its intended use was to form a hub of sorts for a Mac, not an Extreme, so research that before parting with the $200 it will cost to try it. Also look for something called a "Kanex thunderbolt adapter" described on this page: http://store.apple.com/us/question/answers/product/MD861ZM/A/are-usb-30-and-thun derbolt-compatible-is-there-an-adapter-presently-on-the-market/QDK9FPDKPAFFXUUAT
