    i'm going nuts trying to figure this one out, but i'm coming up short and no one seems to have the same problem.

    just put the rc7100 release of windows 7 on my main home computer, and i need to share out 2 1tb drives (neither have the os on them) to my laptop which has xp pro on it.

    for some odd reason, i am only able to access 1 of the 2 terabyte hdd's over my network from the laptop, both have the EXACT SAME permissions and shares setup with the same process, one works perfect, the other is giving me the permissions error when trying to access.

    -everything is visible from the laptop that i share on the desktop
    -same workgroup
    -all permission set to full control
    -both hdd's fully shared out
    -all updates for net framework installed

    any ideas?

    Yea, I forget the specifics, but I tried to share between win 7 and XP... couldn't get it to work at all.

    Let me try again.

    How are you connected to the network?

    Wireless Adaptor (no wires)
    or
    Ethernet Card (wired network)

    it's both, wireless and ethernet, i have other computers on the network that are all windows xp pro.

    don't see how that would relate to being able to share 1 harddrive perfectly, but not a 2nd one using the exact same settings.

    god, the beta kernel dumped on just about everything it didn't freeze the whole os on on my '04 laptop. wmp froze on everything, every game kernel dumped, the system assement either froze or dumped.

    good news? in the RC only dvds freeze the whole system now.
