Cant Share Printer on MAC

I just bought a Maxtor Share Storage II unit that is networkable with two USB ports on the back for printer or drive sharing. I've connected my printer to it. My Windows machine can print fine, but my Macbook Pro can not. I've tried everything I can think of to make it work, but no luck....Any Suggestions??? Thanks in advance!!

    Yes the Mac can see the printer, It acts as if it is going to print but it does not. The SS is not connected directly to either the mac or pc, it is a networkable drive that is connected to our home network through ethernet.

What have you tried? Can the Mac see the printer at all? Is the Share Storage attached to the Mac or the Windows machine?

I have a Maxtor 9NX2DT-500 hard drive for my PC can I copy my File on a Mac Air computer ( is it compatible ?)


Depends on what you want to do with the files. Data is usually interchangeable between Mac and PC file formats. FAT-32 format files are limited to 4gb in size. You cannot boot a Mac from one of these files or from a drive formatted to FAT-32. To be bootable, an Intel Mac system drive must be formatted as a GUID partition map. Most of the new hard drives come with software that enables Macs to read and write to them without reformatting, thus they are completely interchangeable for data.

Remote storage drive won't (USB) network to laptop


In fact the USB port on the DIR 825 is meant for share port.

So if you plug in a pen drive it should work.
May be the storage drive which you plugged into the router is not plug n play or something like this.

The blue light on my Maxtor is blinking really fast and my Mac no longer recognizes the connection. How can I fix this?


Have you tried restarting your Mac (with the Drive still connected)?

Otherwise try:

1. Disconnect the USB cable from your Mac.
2. Restart your Mac.
3. Reconnect the USB cable to a different USB port on your Mac (like the keyboard USB port for example).

See how you get on. Let me know. Regards,

Unable to see Shared Storage Drive II on EasyManage via Wireless


Just got a Maxtor Share II drive and absolutely love it. Setting it up was a pain especially when the drive didn't remember the Administrators password.
Here's what I think the problem may be

1-Your router is not assigning an IP address to the drive
2-Make sure your router is configured to DHCP IP configuration not Static.
3-Before trying to use the drive make sure to install the Software/Drivers first.
Other suggestions

This may or may not apply to you. I got my Maxtor drive on 4-07-08 and from previous experiences with other computer products, ie, windows software, printer drivers, etc. The manufacturer in order to rush things out the cd software that comes with the product is not the final version and most likely the software already has an update on the manufacturer’s web site so it’s always good to check before committing to what you get on the CD. So sure enough the BIOS for my Maxtor Share II 500Gig hard drive was already old. I downloaded the new version upgraded the BIOS and my drive is working great. I hope this suggestions help. Enjoy your drive. Alfredo.

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 200 GB... Problem


Its going to be a hardware thing. Is the drive connected to a UB2 port? The network itself has its own data transfer rate  ( ie. gigabit ) you need to make sure you cables are no longer than 6 ft, its plugged into a high speed port, and that all ports on the chain are of the same speed. If you have the option, go firewire for this. If that does not rectify it, check adminsitrator properties of the drive.

Printer troubles (HP F380), connecting via USB to Maxtor NAS


Can you log into the Storage Router? The question is, where can you see the printer? If you can see it on the Router but not on the notebook, the problem is with the Router... if the Router sees it fine, you may have a presentation problem. Let us know.
