Networking a HDD

  costlyspy 17:29 28 Jun 2007

I've got two HDD's installed into my desktop, I would like to place this hdd onto my network as it's only going to be used for pictures and videos etc. Is this possible as I've tried sharing it like a folder and my laptop cant see it. My laptop is on Vista and my desktop is on XP, the laptop can see and use the shared folder on the desktop.

Should be able to set the second drive as shared folder (i.e the root) XP will warn you that this isn't a recommended idea but if your second drive is just data then there is no real problem.

Presume you have set the second drive as "shared" via My Computer. If Vista can see shared folder then neywork connection looks okay so appears to be a sharing issue.
