I've trawled through the forums and have not found the answer I am looking for, so I decided to post my problem here.
I just bought the WD My Book Live 2TB drive and managed to connect it to my router which is connected to my desktop computer running Win XP SP3.
The initial setup went well, it was detected and all, created a public share and mapped the drive on my desktop.
But when I tried to create a second private share for myself, it keeps telling me that the drive has been mapped to another user name and password.
I have tried to manually map the drive, but there is still no change.
When I try to specify the user name and password to map the drive, it tells me that it has been set to USERPC\USER, where USER is my Win XP account name.
My user account name on XP had a space, but since the WD drive couldn't create a user with a space in the name, I changed the XP account name to one without a space.
Workgroup has also been changed from MSHOME to WORKGROUP, which is the default one from the WD drive.
My XP account is an administrator account, and it does not have a password as well. When I try to map the drive, I put USER in the user field and leave the password blank, same as for the user I created on the WD drive.
But it cannot map the private share and there will be a login popup that puts USERPC\USER in the user field with no password.
My laptop on Win 7 runs fine, mapped another private share drive in seconds. I know Win XP has problems with this, but I have tried the solutions on the knowledge base without any luck.
Is there anything else I can do?
