After having updated from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium, i am experiencing the same problem.
The samba share of NAS wired on my home network (LogiLink UA0056 case, housing Maxtor 250GB IDE HDD connected via Cat5) is no more accessible (it was in Vista).
I can access its http management URL and i can also ftp-ing it from the external. When trying to access from Windows Explorer, Network Error 1208 is reported.
Trying to map it does not help.
Is there any fix for that problem?
Thank you for the support.

Windows Vista and Windows 7 both pass and receive messages from the NAS which at root level responds with an error. Vista ignores the error and connects but Windows 7 will not. It looks as though the version of Samba on the NAS is now too old to talk to whatever protocols Microsoft are now using. The supplier of my NAS (Safecom) do not respond to my e-mails (perhaps they no longer exist). I have installed NAS-BASIC49b2 as firmaware but unless there is further development of this software to correct the error for Win 7 then I will have to stick to the drive mapping route or FTP, which also works. Yet another case of Windows losing its backward capability. Could this be the way the computer industry forces us to keep buying new kit while there is nothing wrong with the old stuff ?
