external drive wont share


21 Jun 2002
ok i just set up a basic file server with XP pro on it. and i have 3 external USB hard drives on it. and i have set them to share the data and all but i cant access them from any computer in the network. yet they are shared the same way as the internal ones and i can access thoes.

anyone got any ideas?
Have you tried making up a shortcut from your PC and linking it directly to the "G drive". Or is it you can see them but not access them?
canadian, you have shared them on the respective computers that they are connected to, correct?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
