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

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.
