Windows 7: Cannot mount shares with external hard drives after OS reinstallation

Cannot mount shares with external hard drives after OS reinstallation

I'm having an issue with trying to mount shares on my network to a WD Live player. Everything worked fine before reinstalling the OS on my computer. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate on a Dell XPS box. I have 2 external MY book 1TB drives with movies and music. The shares on my internal drives mount correctly through SSH to the WD Live but I get this error when trying to mount from the external drives:

Code:
# xmount "//192.168.0.195/Films" "Films" cifs
mount: mounting \\192.168.0.195\Films on /tmp/media/usb/Films failed: Cannot allocate memory
xmount: xmount //192.168.0.195/Films Films cifs user=guest,iocharset=utf8,ro FAILED WTF?!?
Also, I get this info when I run the command on SSH to see my shares:

Code:
session request to 192.168.0.195 failed (Called name not present)
session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present)
NetBIOS over TCP disabled -- no workgroup available

I'm thinking that it might be a Jumbo Frames issue or MTU settings issue. I cannot find the Jumbo Frames setting in my ethernet card settings listings, and have no idea how to set the MTU. Is there anyone out there that knows how to debug this issue? I am going crazy over here trying to figure this out!

thanks!

You did re-share the drives after you reinstalled the OS, right???

Absolutely. All the shares are set up the same as previous to the reinstallation. The weird thing is that I have another older Dell that is set up in my office for accounting purposes with W7U as well. I connected the 2 My Books to it, set up Shares, Putty and SSH, and the shares mounted just fine. I just cannot figure out what setting or configuration is off on the original computer to where just the external drive's shares will not mount.
