Windows xp media center edition - fully updated
Problem cannot share a (any!) directory on a usb external hard disc

So far - can share C:\temp
folder options - use simple file sharing
properties > sharing - tick share this folder on the network - tick allow
others to change my files

Same settings for M:\.test [M ios the usb connected external drive]
The directory shows on a networked computer: EntireNetwork > Ms
WindowsNetwork > WorkGroup > hostComputerName >
BUT on attempted access to test > ERROR "Not accessible - you might not have
permission"


? what to do to make the shared directory accesible by other network users
on the external hard disc

You've got an active thread with answers in another newsgroup. Please don't
multipost; it makes more work for everyone and will get you *less* help,
not more. See this for why:

http://www.blakjak.demon.co.uk/mul_crss.htm - multiposting

If you have forgotten where you posted or can't find your post, use Google
Groups Advanced Search and search for your name. Continue your issue in the
active thread in the other newsgroup so answers aren't all over the place.

Thanks for your response Malke:
You may be assured that it isn't my normal practice to post on more tyhan
one group.

In this case I posted here because it seemd like a group more likely to have
the expertise to provide a solution having 'seen' it only after making the
first post.
