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?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
