Hello All,
I just bought my first mac and am trying to network it to a couple of windows machine at my home. In finder, when I click to Connect to Server and give my pc's IP address, I am able to connect to them but the issue is I am not able to access to folders inside the shared folders.
For Example: I have following folders on my PC :
C:\Movies\English\Sin City \ SinCity.avi
C:\Movies\Spanish\ MCD\mcd.avi

Now if I share Movies folder on my PC and try connecting to it via finder->connect to server. I can see only the English and Spanish folders but can't get inside them to actually access the avi files. Any way to getting around this, so that once I share a folder, I am able to access entire folder content from my mac.

QUOTE Thanks

Try with or without simple file sharing.

Open Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > Scroll to the bottom
