    Question AirPort express...
    ok so i was looking at the airport express and wondering since it had a usb port if it could handle other usb devices other then a printer or even be able to hook up a usb hub so that if you wanted you could plug a printer, external hard drive, and lets say a camera or something (not much use for the camera but for the example it works). I think it would just be nice to have an external hard drive on a wireless network so as soon as you get home just get out your nice shiny power book plug in one power cord (insted of like 10 other cords) and get to work. Not to mention you would be able to easily share everything on the one net work.

    Hard drives have no way to initialize themselves by just plugging into the AE. Certain printer models can work with the wireless signal but Hard Drives would not be able to mount
