    How to? connect Mybook (time machine HD) to airport extreme
    I have mybook HD ( time machine backup hard drive) connected to Airport Extreme by usb.
    the airport utilites> disks shows that the HD is connected.
    shows capacity and User=0

    It looks as if its connected but the "UPDATE" button on that pane is dimmed.

    how do I make my time machine backs up to "Mybook" HD via the airport extreme?
    thank you for helping me

    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
