Problem Accessing Shared Folders in Network Stoarage Device

I have been using my D-Link DSM-G600 (rev. A) for about a year with success (both wirelessly and wired). Recently, I lost access to the files on the hard drive. Specifically, my computer could no longer access the drive that I mapped for the DSM-G600. Interestingly, I am still able to access and modify the device's settings through its IP address and menus. D-Link told me to reset and reflash the firmware. I am not sure exactly what is meant by this, so I reloaded the latest version of the firmware. This did not correct the error. I also rebooted the device and reset to factory settings, with no resolution of the problem. After the problem developed, I got a new computer (running Vista). I see the same problem on the new computer. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Vista is only going to complicat things, try re mapping the drive, delete the shortcut and use my network places to find the drive then make a new shortcut to it if you can access it from there, i've had windows 2000 do the same thing especially with my laptop that I take to school, it a lot of times its due to changing ip's but occasionally windows just seems to forget where stuff is on the network and needs to be reminded. shortcuts can be made by draggin the folder to the desktop or desired location or right click the share you want mapped and select map network drive.

If i press the reset buttom in the back of unit,would i loose my information inside hard drive

Here is user manual that explains about this d-link. Network storage servers are just enclosures that you add a hard drive to to be able to use it on network. per this d-link manual all the reset button is supposed to do is reset network storage its self. I would read on it a little just to be sure. Hope this helps.

Should drive show up as a computer in my windows 7 system

This particular device may actually look like a computer on your Windows (7) Explorer screen, as it has a microprocessor (essentially a little computer) in it to allow the network interface. It should not interfere with your ability to access it or use it.

Hope that's helpful.

Make sure you are logged in as the Administrator of your computer. Power cycle (turn it off and back on) the device. If that doesn't fix the problem. Try factory resetting the unit (depress the reset button on the back of the unit for 4-5 seconds).

While running - press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds.
I needed to press firmly before it worked.
You need a paperclip.
Reset button is placed between network and usb connector.

Mionet application doesn't show files in subfolders of shared folders

I believe you have a choice of using either the web interface or the desktop version of Mionet when you are on the same network (LAN), and as you mentioned both of you have no problem when you are on the same network as the NAS drive (MBWE) is.

When you are out of the local network where your NAS drive is, the only choice you would have is the web interface of Mionet. Eventhough you may have installed the desktop version of Mionet tool on a remote PC, I don't think you can access through that desktop tool. Sorry !!!

NAS issue

Check the user rights on the folder you are making? Also check if that folder is shared or not? Are you logging into both machines with the same username?
I would assign full rights to the username trying to access that particular folder from both pcs. Let me know
