How to share a USB external hard drive on a home network
by ilympt - 5/8/07 10:11 AM
I have a home network connected to a Dlink router, all PC running XP SP2. I have no problem sharing printer, internal hard drive/folder and Firewire external hard drive, but for some reason, I cannot share my USB external hard drive.
I mean, I can set the 'Share' setting on the folder to share, but none of my networked computer can access the files. They do see the shared folder but when I clicked on it, it comes back with an error message "\\pc1\folder is not accessible, you may not have permission ...."
I am pretty sure it is some setting/configuration I am not setting properly, any help would be appeciated
