Windows 7: Drive Mapping

Connecting Windows 7 to Server 2000

I have been following the thread and I still can not get a newly installed Windows 7 to map a network drive with a Server 2000. I have another machine running the has success with mapping drives to the Server 2000 from Windows 7, but this machine was upgraded and the drives were mapped prior to the upgrade.

To make matters work, on occasion the drives have managed to map, but fail the next reboot and I am back to the user name and password screen.

Any help would be much appreciated.

how to see XP drives on Windows 7

I am still unable to figure out how to map an XP drive onto Windows 7.
Surely Windows 7 supports samba?

Samba client to a 7 share or reversed samba server...? Secpol.msc will let you change the Lan manager auth level in 7 to whatever you need. Just rt click, share with, advanced sharing and you're on your way...

Samba is an open source project typically used on Linux systems.

SMB = Server Message Block.

Both Windows 7 and Windows XP support SMB. There is no difference in mounting a shared drive that I can tell. Apparently you need to adjust the file sharing permissions. Unfortunately, Microsoft did a poor job of making this simple enough for the average user...

works but...

If I type in \\192.168.1.13\homes in the top bar of windows explorer, I see the files, so the permissions must be OK. But how do I browse for XP/Linux shares?

I am not sure what is the issue. I just tested share between my Win7 computer and WinXP computer and it works fine. XP computer shows up in Win7 under "Network" and when I click on it, I'm asked for username and password and I enter it.

Well, I am running in Parallels on my Mac, so maybe something is funny. All I see under Network is the shares that Parallels makes. I also changed my workgroup to match the rest of my computers.

If I go into Computer/Map Netowrk drive, I can put the ipaddress and share in, and it mounts. But browsing shows nothing.

I dont know whether this is the right forum for this, plz correct me if im wrong

my problem isnt with the mapping the drives but seeing them
wen i go to my computer they arent shown, nor are they shown when i go to disconnect from them network drive (start menu > right click on computer > disconnect network drive)

the drives have been allocated unused drive letters, and 'reconnect at login' is selected

i can however access them through the address bar, cmd or shortcuts
normally this wouldn't bother me, but Nero MediaHome indexer wont index a drive not shown in 'my computer'

any thoughts?
thanks

Can Not Connect...

I am having the same problem. I can not map a network drive on my windows 7 pc to a windows 2000 server file. The other computers in my offcie are using XP and they connect fine. When I enter the user name and passoword while mapping the windows 7 pc, it will not accept the user name and password.

I tried the suggestion of setting the LAN Manager authentication lever to LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated. That did not fix the problem.
