Are you using an AirPort Extreme Base Station?

No, im thinking about buying one. But i recently bought one Airport express and using it for my internet conection plus printer for both the macs. i tried to take the printer out and put the hdd on it. but it didnt work. is that right what im doing or should i try somethingelse.

The Airport Express like you bought is for Printers only. You can't plug in a USB hard drive and have it show up on your network. You need the Airport Extreme for that. Sorry.

Read this very carefully.
