    Really? Mine auto mounts to my Finder as soon as I boot up and always has through my Airport. Even on my PC.

    The booting up problem was indeed resolved pretty quick, but I'm a macbook user, and since i bought my baby, i guess it has been off for only once... and for some stupid reason, Steve didn't had the wonderfull idea of automounting the disk after reconnecting to your airport... which is highly anoying to me...
    so the trick is to get it mounting without having to boot or reboot.

    Also, what i do is using a 3th party external HD on my AEBS instead of using Time Capsule.
    I don't know if Time Machine configured disks are mounted automaticly..

    TM will automount the drives just like a time capsule if you choose to enable the 'unsupported volume' option for your backups. I, like you, use an AEBS with multiple drives attached via a USB hub.

    You can add any of the external drives as a login item which will automatically mount the drive at boot. I would be interested to hear how you got it to work on disconnecting/connecting to your network.

    MBP 15", 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, OS X 10.8.2, iPad 1, 80gb iPod, ATV 1, iPhone 5
    I would like to know why on my new MBP the drive I use with it mount and show up on the desktop but my older MBP and the drives I use with that mount but do not show on the desktop. The older MBP uses timemachine and itunes external library.

    Okey, so I've done my homework for now, Here's a link to the files needed:

    http://www.jkmwebdesign.nl/Airport_Disk_Utility.zip

    Its really easy, just drag and drop the files to the specified folders.
    Restart, and your all set to go
    just activate the utility application and you should be on your way.

    If any problems come up, please just let me know and I'll be happy to help.

    That's great. Thanks so much for the files. I'd feel more comfortable if I knew what you did so that I could do it myself rather than blindly installing new files.

    Best regards,
    Nicholas

    What i found out, is that the software needed for this, is already in one of the updates from apple itself.
    The only downside.... You can't find the software just right away, since apple mostly hide their software on the internet. (obviously to prevent others from hacking it in any way)

    So after lots and lots of search, I managed to find it after calling some importand apple-dude =D

    So all i did was make it the apple way, which is making it easy to use, or in this case, install.

    That's all the knowledge i guess you need to know. there's not much more to it
    Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

    AirDisk automount on OSX 10.6.4 and OSX 10.5.8
    I'm having similar problems with my AirDisk, which is connected via USB with my Airport Extreme. My PowerMac G5 Quad (OSX 10.5.8) is connected to this Airport Extreme via Ethernet cable and my MacBook Pro 13" (OSX 10.6.4) is connected through Airport.

    I just want the AirDisk to automount at every startup without opening any finder folder as it happens when I use the AirDisk as startup item. But I can't find another way.

    The Airport Disk Utility I have from my old Airport installation CD doesn't work. When I want to open it, I get the info, that this software does only work with OSX 10.4. I did found a older version of the programm, which opens, but the field where the servers should be listed is empty. And I can't delete the Airport-Base-Agent in the System/Libary/CoreServices Folder, because the Mac says its in use, even when Airport is off.

    So please ... how can I solve this problem on my PowerMac G5 Quad, my MacMini and my brandnew MacBook Pro 13"?

    I'm from Austria, so sorry for my bad english.

    The only way to delete the Airport-BaseStation-Agent in the System/Libary/CoreServices Folder was to delete the Airport-BaseStation-Agent.plist file in the Preferences first. But without this file it doesn't seem to start the Agent in the Activity-Monitor.

    Can someone send me the Airport-BaseStation-Agent.plist file? Or any infos what to do?
    I really need help!
