    Here's my problem:
    - I've installed a Seagate 160gb removable USB hard drive on a PC that I use in my office as a file server. It's running XP Pro. The drive works great - I can copy to it, etc. - but only from the server. The drive is labelled "F" and I have shared it. I can see it from anywhere on the server.

    Problem is, I can't seem to map it from my workstation. I can browse to the drive in the "Map Network Drive" dialog box, but when I try to complete the mapping, I get the error "Not enough server storage is available to process this command".

    I have no problem mapping the internal drives - any ideas why this isn't working?

    Thanks for your help - whoever you are!
