Hello all,

I am on OS X Lion and i have an issue with my usb hdd. I have connected my usb hard drive on my home wireless router (the one given from my ISP) but for some reason i cannot see it on my mac and as a result i cant store any files there.

As far as i know my ISP has no restrictions and i can see that i got a device connected on my router when i log in to my router from my browser. Does anyone knows whats the problem and how can i fix it?

I am on a macbook pro fully updated and i got a hitron router. I am using a powered HDD so i am sure that the issue has nothing to do with the amount of power that is needed from HDD to opparate.

Thanks for the help,
