Hi. I have a mac mini and would like to share the mp3's and videos on my usb drive with my windows computer. I have enabled sharing, but only see what is under my user folder on the startup drive. Is it possible to share the external drive?

Well... Moving it back and forth is a bit of a hassle. Kind of defeats the whole purpose of networking. This is definately an area where OSX is a step backward from Windows.
