Airport Extreme and my disappearing HDD

Just got an Extreme and an Express for my super-sophisticated music needs.

I keep all of my music on an external hard drive.

Half of the time, my hard drive, an Iomega, doesn't show up on the desktop. This is particularly the case after I put the thing to sleep, though sometimes it also happens while I'm using the computer.

Often, if I click on a song in iTunes, it will bring up a box that has me type my password, and then the external drive is back. Other times, nothing I do works.

Any ideas?
