On a PC on my home network,
I have shared Folders on the local hard drive and shared Folders on an external hard drive.
From my Mac I can access the shared folders on the PC local hard drive through smb:// without a problem.
But I can't seem to access the shared folder located on the external hard drive.

When I "Connect to Server" I can see every shared folders
but when trying to connect to the external hard drive shared folders, I get the message "The operation cannot be completed because the original item for "MyHD" cannot be found.

Why is that?
What can I do?


QUOTE Thanks
