I have a PC running XPsp2 and a MacBook running OSX 10.5 and I’m just wondering how to access files from my PC while on my Mac.

The Mac recognises my PC net work but every time I try and open the sharedDocs folder the mac tells me:

“the operation cannot be completed because the original item for “SharedDocs” cannot be found.”

Any help would be very much appreciated

I have tried enabling file sharing though system preferences> sharing.
“Apple key K” Connecting to server > putting in my PC Ip number.

And it seem to have no trouble fining there folders I select to share on my PC desktop but just wont open them from the Mac.

I have also turned fire wall off on my pc and created a new user with full privileges and tried login in with that…but no luck.


Im also on MSN if anyone want to live shoot
