This is my setup in the office:
- a DSL modem
- router attached to modem
- 2 PC's running Windows 7 (home edition, 64bit) connected to router via network cable
- laptop running Windows XP SP2 "connected" to router via wireless
- WD My Book World Edition connected to router via network cable
The problem is that I can't access folders on My Book that are protected from Windows 7 (in XP it works). I can see the My Book in "Network" in Win7 and I can access folders that have no protection. But if I create a "folder share" that only one user has access to it does not work. I see the folder but when I click it and enter the username/password (that I've set in the admin panel of My Book) Win7 gives me this message:
\\192.168.1.103\jan_private is not accessible. ou might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again.
What is the problem here? I can't figure it out ...
update: still haven't solved this ... from what I understand this isn't strictly related to My Book but any NAS disk ...
update2: I've now managed to access the folder if I enter the IP of the disk into the address bar, but I still can't access it via it's name (which Windows use by default if you click on the disk in My Computer).
