    Hi i have posted for help in the network but not had much luck so thought i would try here, its more of a win7 problem anyway i think.

    The problem is my win7 pro Desktop will not map my nas drive (wd mybookworld II edition 2TB),
    it does not even see it on the network. ( Network Discovery is ON )
    i have tried to map using \\ipofmynas\public
    Problem found "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection"

    From a web browser i can access the WD Configuration Manager for the NAS via its IP and change settings if i like without any problems. (Desktop)

    Using a Laptop running win7 home i can map the NAS as normal and access the files

    From my Desktop i can map the NAS and access the files from within Virtual PC XPmode

    The desktop & Laptop are in the same Homegroup and are all connected to a Router

    The NAS is also connected to the Router

    Can anyone help? Thanks
