Airport Extreme with external HD sometimes gives error

When connecting via AFP to my external drive on my Airport Extreme, sometimes I have to try to connect a couple of times before seeing my files. I got errors like “not available share” and other errors. After trying 3 times, it works and streaming is perfect.

Maybe aTV isn’t waiting long enough for the HD to up?

Are you running the latest RC1 version (Media Player 0.9.3)?

If so, sending in a bug report will help in tracking down what’s going on.

Yes running the latest version.

Could it have something to do my my external HD spinning up? It only happens when I did not use the external HD for a while.

I’ll post a bug report.
