Can I also share a DVD writer and scanner along with a printer and hard drive if I use a powered USB plugged to the Extreme?

    I would not use a DVD writer over a network connection even if it did work, Writing DVD's needs to have a reliable smooth latency free connection to write data, even with buffer technology I would not trust an IP Connection for this purpose.

    With the scanner, it would have to have a driver from the manufacturer that supported printing over the Network, and the Scanner would have to be "network aware".

    The short answer is "No, I don't think so" unless someone is familiar with some obscure hidden feature I don't know about.
