[RESOLVED] Map Network Drive in Windows 7
I'm trying to map a network drive in Windows 7 Home Premium and it will not connect. I'm using the exact same settings that I used on my other PC with XP and it connects fine. I did some research online and everything I found says you need Windows 7 Professional. Is this correct? Is there no way to map a network drive with Home Premium? The settings I'm using are:
Z: drive - \\188.8.131.52\shared
Username and passsword connect in XP.
They don't work in Windows 7.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Need A help on Error Issue
Hi Jones sorry i know this thread is marked as solved But was searching for a help on Windows 7 Home Premium Mapping Network Drive and came across this website and seen your reply asking for the ERROR message which i think is my case . I have connected my laptop to my office network through WiFi . Our network installed PC's has Windows 7 professional SP1 on them and my laptop has Win 7 Home Premium . It connects and and i can see all the PC's and NAS devices on the network under my Network folder in windows explorer BUT when i tries to open/access their shared folders and drives or tries to Map a drive/folder it gives the error exp. "\\abc is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the Administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission. The Specified Network Path is Invalid." even i logged on as a Admin. our PC works under WORKGROUP and we dont have domain . Is this the OS issue or something else ? Your Help will be appreciated . Thanks Bilal
