I purchased a 1TB WD My Passport drive. At first it wouldn't install plugged into a USB hub and then I realized the only USB 2.0 ports I have are on the front of my Dell. Running Windows 7 Home I plugged it in and it installed flawlessly. I transferred a bunch of files from the hard drive and my thumb drive as well, even did a computer backup. After I did all this I made the drive a network drive so my wife could access it. She is running Windows XP Pro. I gave her full permissions to read and write to the drive. She can SEE the drive on her computer just fine but when she tries to access it she gets the error, "drive is accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource." Contact network administrator of this network. Access is denied."
I've literally exhausted all my technical resources to resolve this issue. Could it be an issue with us using two different operating systems? Any help someone can offer would be very much appreciated!
