Problem Accessing Shared Folders in Network Stoarage Device
I have been using my D-Link DSM-G600 (rev. A) for about a year with success (both wirelessly and wired). Recently, I lost access to the files on the hard drive. Specifically, my computer could no longer access the drive that I mapped for the DSM-G600. Interestingly, I am still able to access and modify the device's settings through its IP address and menus.
D-Link told me to reset and reflash the firmware. I am not sure exactly what is meant by this, so I reloaded the latest version of the firmware. This did not correct the error. I also rebooted the device and reset to factory settings, with no resolution of the problem.
After the problem developed, I got a new computer (running Vista). I see the same problem on the new computer.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Problem Accessing Shared Folders in Network Stoarage...
Vista is only going to complicat things, try re mapping the drive, delete the shortcut and use my network places to find the drive then make a new shortcut to it if you can access it from there, i've had windows 2000 do the same thing especially with my laptop that I take to school, it a lot of times its due to changing ip's but occasionally windows just seems to forget where stuff is on the network and needs to be reminded. shortcuts can be made by draggin the folder to the desktop or desired location or right click the share you want mapped and select map network drive.

Here is user manual that explains about this d-link. Network storage servers are just enclosures that you add a hard drive to to be able to use it on network. per this d-link manual all the reset button is supposed to do is reset network storage its self. I would read on it a little just to be sure. Hope this helps.
This is an unusual error. Error Code 1236 - The network connection was aborted by the local system.
There is no single issue that causes this error code, so we need to verify all of the networking basics are covered and working.
1. Verify the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway are fully entered and / or populated by the DHCP server. Click START, then RUN, type in CMD then click the OK button. Type IPCONFIG /ALL - verify the three fields all have valid info for your network.
2. Verify you can see the local network - including other computers and network devices. This will rule out the possibliity that this computer cannot see any network devices and not just the shared folders
3. Log the user out and have another user that can access the shared folders log into this comptuer and try to access the shares. The user profile could be corrupted and preventing the user from accessing the shared folders. IF the new user cannot access the shared folders, then it is the PC / OS causing the issue. IF they can access the shared folders, backup the original user's data, delete their profile and have them log in again to create a new profile.
It is always recommended to upgrade Windows XP to Service Pack 3 - unless you have a very specific program that will not run on SP3.
When you are connected to a Windows® network, you can browse the shared folders of other computers in the network, using the Archos File Browser. From the Home Screen, select the Browser icon. Once in the browser, select ‘Network’. Your device will search for other computers in the Windows® network and you can start browsing their shared contents.
Using the Archos double browser, you will be able to transfer files from a computer onto your device, or transfer files from your device onto a computer’s write-enabled shared folder.
This is a usuall problem when connecting Vista and XP, specially when your vista is a 64-bit and your XP is 32-bit. What you need to do is to manually map the folders on the vista by opening windows explorer and then clicking on Map network drive, you need to put in the exact folder location. Next thing is you need to add user not only activationg the allow access, you need to add the user on the shared folder, you are only using workgroups, unlike domain networks, you just have to give them permission.
if you ran your network wizard to get the internet access shared then you should be able to share your files too.
and folders the same way ,
go to my network device,
veiw network computers,
if you can see the computers desk top then
go to Shared folders and try to see if your folders have been shared open something.
If you can see the desktop and not open the shared folders then run the network wizard again,shutdown and restart,to save your settings,
to share files between both machines you will need to drag the file into my shared folders or rightclick on the file your sharing and click on sharing,follow the prompts to share and that should fix your problem.
