Hello. I'm running XP Pro on one machine, Windows 2000 on another. I have a blank, formatted HDD that I've got connected to my computer via USB. I want to use it as a network resource. I can set the folder to be shared, and it shows up as such, but when browsing My Network Places, if I click on the drive it asks me for a username and password! If I try to map it as a network drive, it asks me the same thing. The drive is on my computer, I'm logged in, but it still asks me for a username and password. There is no password for that drive. Of course, I can access the drive properly through My Computer, but big deal. I don't have this problem on another XP setup sitting in the garage. I can get get a Lexar Jumpdrive (itty bitty USB removable drive) to do exactly what I want with no asking of a username and password. Am I missing something with the other drive? Thanks.
