I have two computers C1 and C2 runing Windows 7 and both of them are members in a domain. On C1 I have an USB hard-disk which I shared for the users U1 and U2 giving them Read-Only permissions on the entire drive.
However, even if I can see and browse the hard-disk localy (IOW from C1), from the other computer (C2) where I’m logged with U1, trying to access the C1′s shared device, the C2′s Windows 7 throws an error saying “Device Not Ready”. Why? How can I fix this?
PS: Tried to un-share and re-share again. No luck.
Its a USB drive? Have you tried to safely remove it and unplug it and restart the computer? Then reconnect it and try to share it again? Sometimes these little things help on windows. You could also try the advance sharing rather than the normal sharing – or the other way around. Put the permissions on groups rather than on single users. Thats what I would try first.
- Force admin$ share and C$ share across the network as well as simple file sharing turned off
- What software can I use to send a USB device over the network from a debian server to a windows client?
- Image software that can push to a network share
- NFS share: no space left on device
- windows service writing in a network share on a non-domain network
