Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Samsung Ecogreen F2 (HD154UI) 1.5TB HDD in a Rosewill enclosure. It's been formatted and has 3 ~500GB partitions. I can use it on my Acer laptop (Vista), but both of my girlfriend's Dell work laptops (XP) can't get to them via network or USB. Oddly, it does show up in Device Manager under both of her Dells. I can add it using Add New Hardware but it still doesn't show up. Any idea why her Dell laptops running XP can't see this drive, when my Acer laptop running Vista can?
Both of her Dells are running under different domains, and mine is in my own workgroup. Is that why we can't seem to network to share folders?
