Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I posted this once, but I think it ended up in the wrong place so I am re-posting it...
I have a PC (running XP home) with an external HD and a printer attached to it (USB).
Both are set to share with the computers on the network and ''Allownetwork users to change my files'' is checked as well for the externalHD.
I have a home network through my wireless router, and a total of 3computers access the WiFi (the above mentioned computer and 2 others).I would like the 2 other computers to be able to share the printer aswell as the external HD of the desktop. Currently both computers areable to print through the printer and both computers were able toaccess and use the external HD - great.
Something happened about a month ago where one of the computers(running XP Professional) stopped being able to access the HD. It stillcan print but it gets some errors accessing the HD:
The HD is not accessible.
You might not have permission.
Not enough server storage is available.
There should not be any permission issues - it is allowed on thedesktop and in fact the other wireless laptop can access the HD. Itdoesn't seem to be a connetivity issue b/c it shares the printer tothis computer just fine. There is plenty of space on all the computersas well as the HD
What I tried was to delete the HD from my network places and then re-instate it. That didn't work either.
Check the all of the computer you have, make sure they are all in the same workgroup. and have same users rights from the share folder, both on the HHD and the printers.
