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

Invisible network hard disk

well, if you can Ping it, then the firewall is not likely going to be blocking it. Regardless, which product do you have ? The Silver Stone 2-drive NAS ? If yes, you should be using the FNS Assistant (FNSA)
The Freecom Network Storage Assistant helps you to locate your Freecom SilverStore 2-Drive NAS in your network. It can also be used to:
- quickly open the SilverStore 2-Drive NAS configuration website.
- configure the basic settings.
- mount shared network folders.
a) Start the FNS Assistant and select the device from the device list.
b) Go to "Web interface of your Freecom Network Storage device" for initial configuration

hope that helps.

In your office network, for sure, you have a DHCP server who gave the IP addresses to all devices for that network and this seems to be the reason for why you could see your NAS. On home, you also need a DHCP server. You don't say anything about you home network. The best idea is to just make a temporary network with 2 devices: your computer and your NAS by connecting the NAS directly to your computer's network adapter, set the IPV4 IP for that adapter to the same class addresses as your NAS was set by default (usually NAS had "192.168.x.y" where "x" could be 0, 1 or 2 "y" could be any value between 1 and 254, but mostly, 1) and try to access it via http to manage him (need a user name and a password). For NAS default address and username and password, consult NAS user manual. Access it with from your preferred browser using: \\192.168.x.y
Once you gain the control, cut off his DHCP service and tell him to accept the IP address from the network defined DHCP. (btw: one normal DHCP server is allowed on one network! Cascaded DHCP also is allowed, but it's a little bit complicated)
Good luck!

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, after years of use my Vista machine now tells me that the USB Device isnt recognised.

However last month I found that the Maxtor is no longer recognisable to my machine. Reading through related postings on other sites it appears that Vista updates from Microsoft may be the reason why this functionality has suddenly ceased. I presume the security updates in particular may have meant that the Maxtor 3200 is also considered a potential threat. The question is who will take responsibility for resolving this issue of Maxtor 3200 users no longer being able to access their back up files via their Vista based machines. Personally I believe the onus is with Microsoft

hope this helps

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).
