I have three machines, one running Win 7, one Win RT and one Win 8. Both the Win 7 and Win RT machines can both access both my NAS drives without any problem.

The machine that is running Win 8 will no longer connect to the Buffalo NAS drive. It keeps asking for a PW. When this machine was running Win 7 a short week or so ago, it had no problem. I have assigned no security to either of my NAS drives. I can see no reason for Win 8 to be asking for a PW. To make it even odder, the other NAS drive connects just fine without any problem. It's a Network Space Max drive.

So it would appear that the problem should be with the Buffalo drive and Win 8 but I cannot find anything on this. Can anyone offer some insight?
