I have an iMac currently running LION (V10.7.2). I have a WD 500GB My Passport drive directly connected to the PC via a USB cable, and can locally access the drive without issue. In addition, I am able to use PS3 Media Server to remotely access media stored on this drive without issue.
My challenge is that an older iMac running 10.6 can see the primary iMac (above) across the wireless network, and even access a couple of other HDD’s I have externally connected, but it cannot ‘see’ the WD My Passport drive. I have checked the “sharing & permissions” for the WD drive, and find that this drive seems to support local read & write only, with no option to change the settings.
Anyone have any idea how the heck I can change the settings on the drive so I can have remote ‘read only’ access to this drive?
Thanks in advance for any help you guys are able to offer.
