I'm having serious problems running a Snap Server. I run it as an extra hard drive. No operating system, just a file holder. It only seems to work if I run it through a network router called Linksys (BEFSR41 V4). Mind you, I dont know if it can work directly, this is only the way I figured out how. Irritating, but it works....sort of. Mind you, the router is worthless for anything else because I cannot configure it for the internet.

Now, the main problem. I disconnected everything to change locations, and now the server wont work. All the lights are on on the router and server, but when I try to map the drive, it says;

"the mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occured: The workstation driver is not installed."

I tried looking for the drivers for both pieces of hardware, but I dont know where to get them, yes I know, manufaturers websites, but I can't find them there.

I have a windows XP Home OS on an Emachine computer. I'm running SP2. The device manager gives me no answers, not even a warning.

Can someone help?

This topic was from 2007....I have since dismantled the server, and used the HDs equipped separately with enclosures. This topic can be deleted.

Feedback appreciated...but the forum does not necessarily delete closed topics/threads.

They thus remain available to someone who might encounter a similar situation as you experienced...or those (like myself) who just learn from situations which are posted in the XP forum.

Happy computing :thumbsup:.
