Unable to Create Folder on Mapped Drive

Hi All...

Not sure if I have come to the right forum for this question or not.???

I have a External PVR unit that is connected to our home Theatre system and we watch downloaded movies that are stored on it's hard-drive.. This box is also connected via UPNP and I can see ALL Drives attached to my laptop which is located upstairs in the study... All good so far.!!

I was able to, from the computer, map this drive (N Drive) and was able to copy the movies files directly to the hard-drive of the PVR.

Until recently, I was able to create new folders on the PVR hard-drive and then copy the files, but am no longer able to do so as I keep getting an error msg stating:

"Could not create new file N:\Movies\xxxxxx. The system cannot find the file specified"

I can however copy the movie files or any other files directly to the hard-drive (ANY FOLDER).. Just cannot create any new folders!!!! Which I was able to do previously.???

Does anyone know if there were any Microsoft Patches or anything else that might affect the way things are happening here.??

Would found some help in trying to figure this one out.!!

Regards

Julius

P.S. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x32 on a Toshiba Satellite Pro P300

Perhaps there is a folder limit imposed by the PVR? Have you tried deleting an existing folder, then creating another one?

No.. There has never been that limit imposed before... It is just crazy that I cannot create new folders but I can copy files to existing folders.?? Regards Julius

Sorry.. Forogot to mention I did delete and try to re-create.. NO GO.!!

Did you remove or install any software, hardware, or Windows updates around the time that this problem started?

No.. No Hardware or software was installed or removed... As for Windows updates... I know I didn't do any manually, but Microsoft quite possibly may have installed updates.?? I will check update history when I have a free moment later in the day.. Will let you know the outcome of that one.. Regards Julius
