Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
I go thru the windows explorer and type \\mybookworld and see all the
share folders I already created, but when I try to enter to one of them
the system show me the following popup message:
\\mybookworld\(my folder)is not accessible. You may have not permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The network name cannot be found.
But, if a create a new folder the hard drive allow me to enter to it. It's looks like the older folders are corrupted or something like that.
I also notice that the general information of the drive like the size, free and used is no longer available. And in the Drive management tab is only showing Safely remove usb drive.
Right click on the folder, properties, sharing
click on share, give permission to everyone. click ok
now try to access the folder again

Drive management show only safely remove usb drive.
When u use mionet software it map the share to a drive letter. If u create folder or files on that drive u dont have permission to chance those files or folders on \\mybookworld.
Solution, dont use mionet software.

You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer

click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box
then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP
click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your usb drive (It should be E:/ or something)
