Windows 7: Mapping a network drive problem.

Mapping a network drive problem.

This makes no sense. I have always had 2 cpu's on a network. My main rig, and a "server". (Basically a storage and backup cpu). Well I just built a new rig, and installed Win 7 RC. Re formatted my old "main" rig to become my new "server". I still had the old "server" (Win XP) connected to the network, and had no problems mapping the drive to my Win 7 machine, and the new server with Win XP.

Now, I took the 320GB Storage drive out of the thrid CPU and installed it in the new "server" and tried to map the drive to my Win 7 Machine. I can not for the life of me get it to work. Both machines have the same user and p/w for login. WHAT GIVES???
Thanks

Just to get the basics out of the way first

Can you see the drive on the actual system it is physically located on and is it shared ?

As you have moved the drive, you may also want to check that the NTFS permissions for the drive are set to the new location's user and not the old location's user - user "Fred" on machine "a" and User "Fred" on machine "b" are different as far as NTFS permissions are concerned and can cause sharing to fail

Thanks. It was my bad. I forgot to uncheck the Simple File Sharing tick box on my XP Machine. OOPS

Here is the solution of the problem:
Start-->Control Panel--> System and Maintenance--> Administrative Tools--> Double-Click Local Security Policy--> click the triangle next to Local Policy--> Security Options--> Network security: LAN manager authentication level--> Send LM & NTLM responses form the drop down box-->OK

Actually, I think the fix was to uncheck simple file sharing on the XP computer...
