Airport Express as Time Machine

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Does anybody know if you can use Airport Express (not Extreme) with Time Machine by mounting an external hard drive off it. Everywhere I read it only says it can be done with Airport Extreme. And that the usb port on the Express is for a printer only.

Any help would be appreciated

    My old "G" model Express will NOT accept HDD on it's USB port... I suppose the new "N" model could be different, but doesn't mention anything about using a HDD with it.

    Yes, the Extreme DOES allow a USB hdd, and you can use it with Time Machine.
