I have this problem only with win 8.1 for several years and not with win 7 and XP. When I try to connect win 7 with win 8.1 I always get that there is a so called spelling error in the drive and the computer name. That is ridiculous and a lie.! HOW CAN I SOLVE THAT PROBLEM!! I HATE WIN 8.1. You would think by now this problem would have been cor-rected with security up-dates!!!!

appears to be a spelling problem error code is 0x80070035 drive letters not found or recognized

Thiis has been going on for a long time. should have been corrected by security downloads. This never happened before with win 7 and xp over many years. Only when win 8 came on the scene Win 7 would not connect to 8.

  1. Give the win 8 computer a static IP address, e.g. 192.168.1.80, so it does not change.

  2. to access the win 8 computer from the win 7 computer, open Windows Explorer and in the address bar type \ followed by the target computer's static address, for example,\192.168.1.80 and press enter

  3. If the win 8 computer uses username / password, you will be prompted for them. Enter the username and password to log on to the win 8 computer.

  4. The win 8 computer will be then added to the Win 7 computer's Network list, appearing as an IP address instead of a computer name. You can access its shared drives just as if it were listed by name instead of by number.
