    just switched, network drive issues?
    so i bought my new imac to day. very swish.


    BUT im having issues connecting to my network hard drive. dont ask me the brand, it was a no name external enclosure i found on the cheap but it has samba and everything i need for it to work great on windows.

    now ive done the whole "connect to server" ... entered in smb://192.168.2.2 and its asked me what folder i wish to mount. it connects fine, no errors.

    one problem is that the folder comes up empty on my mac but not on my pc, am i doing something wrong? or is this an interoperability issue because the drive is windows based? (i know NOTHING about macs okay? pretend your explaining it to a pine nut )

    is the drive formatted in NTFS?

    hmm that is rather curious, make sure it is in fat32 as mac has some problems with NTFS, I have to get some sleep (it's 1:06 AM where i am) but i'll be on later to help you out some more =]
