Connecting to Shared Disks

Apple includes an AirPort Disk Utility that can be used to access shared hard drives. You can also find them by browsing your network as you would to find other file servers or computers with file sharing enabled. The AirPort Disk Utility includes a menu bar indicator for Mac OS X and, by default, automatically detects (and attempts to connect to) any shared hard drives. If you choose to manually browse for shared drives and you are using a password instead of user accounts, you are prompted for a user name and password when connecting. Simply leave the user name section of the dialog box blank.
