    I have a 1Tb Iomega home media network drive. It normally connects via the network to all my machines (iMac osx, eee pc W7, ubuntu 10). But, something has happened, so now I can see the folders on the network drive but when I click on it (photos, videos etc), it says Windows cannot access \\Iomega-0E10FD\movies

    Error code: 0x80070043
    The network name cannot be found

    This seems similar to someone elses post but is unsolved by anyone. As he says, the management software which came with the drive seems to suggest everything is ok. For example it reports that 90% of the disk is used, which was the case before this problem.

    I have tried disabling the firewall in the router and the W7 eee pc, but nothing has worked.

    please help!


    Any help would be appreciated.

    I just started having this exact same problem. I'm on a windows desktop using windows 7. I have an iomega home media network drive, and all of a sudden for the last couple of days I am unable to access any of my folders on it. I get the same error message (Error code 0x80070043 Network name cannot be found). The drive and all the folders show up in windows explorer (sometimes they have a red X on them, sometimes they don't) but when I click on the folders, I get that error. I can't access any of the folders using the iomega storage manager software either. I get the same Network Name Cannot Be Found thing. I am also at around 90% of the disc used. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
