    Weird issue.

    I have 5 drives (of 7) on a Win 7 Pro (64) computer mapped on a Win XP (SP3) computer on my home network ... IT connects to ALL 5 ...

    YET, that same Win XP computer will NOT access those same 5 drives (on the Win 7 computer) through the network (unmapped) giving the message "\\hostname\X is not accessible" (but WILL connect to the other 2 drives). All 7 drives have the same sharing and security settings ...

    Baffled ... any ideas????

    Are they mapped by hostname or IP address?
