I have two Window 7 peers hard wired thru an SMC. I'm not using homegroups. I can see the public shares on Peer 1 from Peer 2 and similarly I can see the public shares on Peer 2 from Peer 1. However I can't see drives (my storage drives) on Peer 1 from Peer 2. The opposite is also true. Get the message from the topic line above. Why can't I see public shares but not other drives? The workgroup on both peers has the same name. I have shut down my firewall but as expected that had no impact. Everything that is supposed to be on is on - network discovery, file and printer sharing etc. I have set the media drives to share (advanced sharing, permissions) and have even tried the everyone setting. I have disabled passwords. This network worked perfectly with XP why won't it work with Win 7 and most importantly why can I see public but not other drives. This obviously not a connection or hardware issue since I can see the the public shares perfectly.
