Hello. I currently have a DSM-520 with a USB hard drive directly connected to the unit. I would prefer use a network drive so I could easily assess the hard drive connect without directly connecting it to my laptop. I understand the new Apple Airport Extreme can be used to convert a USB drive to a network accessible drive. Does anyone know if the DSM-520 could access content off a drive connected to my network through the Airport Extreme? If it is possible, do I need any special server software to be installed on the drive? My desire is to be able to access the content without the computer being on.
Thanks for your help.
