I have two laptops, one running Vista Home and one running Vista Ultimate, both on a wireless network. Both machines are working fine, and I have full access to all drives on both machines and the internet.
I just bought a MyBook Live today, and have plugged it into the wireless router. The Vista Home machine can access the external drive through Windows Explorer, the Vista Ultimate machine can’t. I can ping the drive on the Vista Ultimate machine using its IP address, and can access the drive through the web browser. It is visable on the network, but when I try to open I am either dropped to the User documents directory, or get the error message “Windows cannot access \MYBOOKLIVE”, error 0x80070035 depending on whether I try to open the icon that looks like the drive or a computer respectively.
The WD SmartWare software can access the drive from the Vista Ultimate machine, and is happily backing up the system.
I have been through all the settings I can think of, and both machines are the same. Any suggestions?
