Hope someone can help me here. Don't know if it's a Windows 7 issue or a Hardware issue.
Some files will not transfer to my External Network HD and give the following error message:
"There is a problem accessing \\SZOSTAKHDEXT\Public, make sure you are connected to the network and try again."
Tried from this Win 7 desktop to XP desktop, and same issue, some files copy, some don't.
Go the other way from XP desktop to this Win 7 desktop and everything copies fine.
Everything copies from the Ext Network HD to this Win 7 desktop no problem.
The file size doesn't seem to matter too much, by that I mean large (350mb+) or small (40mb) some files won't copy. I keep trying the same files over and eventually some of them will copy, but some just don't want to at all.
I have a notebook with Win7 and it has no problem copying the same files that won't copy from my desktop. I have an XP desktop that will copy just fine also.
The desktop in question here is running Win7 Pro 64bit. The onboard NIC has been disabled and a replacement NIC has been put in the system.
"Agere Systems ET-131x PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Adapter" has been in use for about a year now. Just got the Ext HD 2 months ago.
Thinking about replacing the NIC with a different one to test it out.
Anyone have any insight before I do.
