Windows 7 Cannot access Vista drives over wireless network from 7


New Member

Hope someone can help here! All is great with 7 except this issue. I have a HTPC and I cannot for the life of me connect to the 2 drives. The network is functioning fine - indeed I can connect to my wife's laptop (XP) - I just get a simple error telling me that I don't have permission - "Windows cannot connect to \\Htpc-PC\d". There is no problem doing this from my Vista installation (I am dual booting). Interestingly if I create another User with the same name/password as the HTPC then there is no problem. Why can't I connect by selecting "Logon with different credentials" or something?


Just right click in the Network area and create a network place whoch actually existed before - then you can map the same drive.

Please help!
