I have a new airport extreme base station and a 1Tb usb external drive. I have it connected to the base station and I can mount it from my mac book pro just fine.

I can create, copy, move, and delete files on the network drive. The problem is that I cannot save open files. Here are two examples.

1) using a library on the remote drive iTunes reports (very often) that it is unable to save the library because the file is locked or not writeable.

2) I get the same error when editing a pdf document in Acrobat. I can create and save a document with no
problem, but if I edit it and try to save the document I get the same error as when iTunes tries to save it's library.

When the drive is connected directly to my MacBook I do not have this problem.

Does anybody have any idea what is going on here. It is very frustrating.

Thanks for your help.
