    Hi,

    I had recently encountered the same problem accessing NAS from Windows 7. I'm using QNAP and Thecus NAS, however I believe this solution should work for NAS with Windows 7.

    To access the attached NAS, do the following (Windows 7):
    1. Open: Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings.
    2. Click "Turn on password protected sharing"
    3. Done. Now all the NAS can be seen!
    Hope this help. Cheers....[​IMG]

    Here is how I did for NAS: Coomax CN-590

    1. Go to Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools, open "Local ecurity Policy\Local Policies\Security Options" and edit the value of "Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level" to "Send LM and NTLM responses"
    2. Create one account in the Windows 7, say userid = Sarthak and Password is left blank.
    3. Create one account in the Coomax CN-590 Samba server with the same userid = Sarthak and Password is left blank.
    ( I think instead of leaving it blank, you can have the same password in both places, I have not tested it though)
    4. Then browse the NAS down to a folder, such as my NAS is http://storage-2044/, but when I access it from the windows explorer, I browse a folder in it, such as \\storage-2044\public and it works (just \\storage-2044 does not work)
    Thanks.
