What is the format of the disc? Did you go into the AirPort Utility and check the AirDisk settings?

ahh, you are my hero. thanks for replying.
well the format is actually mac conform as i was using it for time machine backup earlier.
but the status is as the pic showing even-though i am not attaching the external hard drive :-(

p.s. the hard is working properly when i directly plug in

If you go into the AirPort Utility and check the AirDisk settings do you see the drive? I am not at home now or I would attach a pic of what it should look like. There shouldn't be too much to configure to get it working.
