    did you install with a recovery CD and if so did that put security suite trailware onto the PC - Norton, Mcafee etc
    that maybe blocking access

    if you know the share name can you map using the ip address

    \\ipaddress\sharename

    your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (ipofnas) is not responding

    ok i have windows virtual pc installed, iv just run xp mode and was able to map my nas, and iv just moved files from the virtual xp pc's mapped nas drive, to my windows 7 folder and the files transfered..... this is so annoying,

    so why the help can't windows 7 pro see it when i try to map the drive? i don't want to have to run xp mode just to access my nas
