Airport Utility 7.6.4 installed and no other updates are specified as avaiable.
For a while the external drive with two 1T Mac formatted partitions cannot be seen by network nor appears in Disk section of Airport Utility.
Mavericks used and all fully up to date.
Connecting drive to iMac and MBP directly allows use of the drive fine.
I think the firmware has stopped the external drive from being recognised. Did have the "USB Power"  amber light occur some time ago but selected to ignore. External drive is powered of course.
Any ideas?

A Gen3 TC the USB port is seriously underpowered.
A powered hub is the first essential item to get this working. The fact that your disk is powered is insufficient.. I think also because of the limited number of USB devices the airport utility can work with.. even some powered hubs are simply not recognised.
For a while the external drive with two 1T Mac formatted partitions cannot be seen by network nor appears in Disk section of Airport Utility.
Mavericks used and all fully up to date.
The disk must appear in airport utility.
From there getting disks mounted in Mavericks can add another level of pain.. but recognition comes first.
The latest firmware is more likely a step backwards than anything.. I would downgrade the firmware to 7.6.1. Factory reset. Use all SMB naming, ie short, no spaces and pure alphanumeric.
