Windows 7: From Win7, unable to map a shared drive; ok from XP

From Win7, unable to map a shared drive; ok from XP

I'm desperate.

I'm unable to map any shared drive from my Win 7 laptop.

I have no problem doing it from my XP laptop.

I think I have tried everything recommended in every forum...

Is there a systematic approach, step by step, to debug such a situation ?

Thanks,

Gaston

Reading back my post, I noticed that I badly explained my problem.

From my Win 7 PC, I try to map a shared drive, and to simplify the problem, let's say that the shared drive is on an XP system (in fact I cannot map any shared on any OS). I can map this shared drive from another XP system.

My problem is not to map some data on the Win 7 PC

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

No, sorry to tell...

In fact I cannot map shred drive on any system: Unix, Windows 2003, Windows 2008, XP
