    Mapping (non-Airport) network drive problem
    Hi all, I am a new mac user and i am having a problem mapping my Seagate external drive which is connected to the network via USB on my wireless router(Linksys EA3500) I have a Macbook pro 2012 running Mountain Lion.

    I have tried to go to connect to server and type in the address of the drive(smb://192.168.1.1/name of drive) but get a message saying there was a problem connecting to "address of server" please contact admin. This drive was able to be mapped on a Windows system and worked fine. Does the drive need to be formatted to be read by a Mac?

    I should mention that when i go to Finder, it does see the drive as a Free Agent drive but it has no folders.

    Any help is greatly apppreciated.

    When you look at the drive in Finder, do you log in? You likely have to enter a set of login credentials. This would explain why you can only see a portion of the contents (or, in this case, none).
