I was wondering... I have a PowerMac G5 (OS X 10.4.8) with a 500Gb external hard drive. Now I was wondering if there was anyway to network this drive to a Windows PC without having to detach it and hook it up to my PC.... Any Ideas? Thanks... shootingstarluk

Is it possible to 'share' that drive on your network, like you can with say, a CD drive? I'm not sure if it is any different from your internal HD in the way of sharing, but I have never used an external HD.

Good luck
QUOTE Thanks
