Hello,

 

I have 5 computers on my network, 1 windows 7, 1 vista, and 3 XP.

 

On the Vista machine I have 5 3TB WD USB External HD's

 

I have all the drives mounted on every machine and never had a problem accessing them ever. Recently I formatted one of the drives and now I cannot access it anymore. The drive is shared correctly just like all the others.

 

I have unshared and reshared the drive and still nothing. If I attempt to access it from any of the machines I get the same thing, drive is not accessible.

 

Any ideas what may have happened?

I can see it and use it fine from the vista machine.. I also have TVercity Media server running and my TV plays things off of that drive absolutely fine, but I cannot access it from any other computer but the vista. Also all the other 4 drives, which are the same drives all are mounted and work fine from every computer.
