Windows 7: Shared Disk Drives Do Not Show Up on XP Windows VPC

Shared Disk Drives Do Not Show Up on XP Windows VPC

With Integration Features enabled, The disk drives that are selected in settings do not appear on the XP VM, except for USB Drives.

I have tried uninstalling/installing Integration Features on the VM as well as removing/installing Windows Virtual PC on the host OS.

Any ideas?

Machine: Lenovo IdeaPad Z575
AMD A6-3420M Quad Core 1.5GHz 6GB Ram
Host OS: Windows Home Premium x64
VM OS: Windows XP Pro SP3 x32

Sometimes you have to enter a user name and password on the share on the VM, could this be the issue?

Would I be prompted for a login or is there something I missed during setup?

Now that you mention it, If Integration is set to Manual and the VM is started, I am prompted to login to Windows XP. (there is a password assigned to the account) However, if Integration is set to Auto, and the VM is started, it appears to login automatically. The funny thing is I DO NOT have any credentials saved for the VM. And just to clarify, I am not mapping networked folders, rather trying to access the Host OS Disk Drives from the VM.

OK so make sure you have the hosts drives shared and I am pretty certain you have to create an account on your virtual XP with the same name and password as on the host. I cannot be certain on that point as I now use VM Ware.
