Messed up setting up network now can't see removable drive
Posted on 2006-11-17
I have windows XP prof on laptop and desktop. I recently tried (unsuccessfully) to set up a home network and in fact EE provided a simpler option to solve the problem I needed to resolve with a network!
However, since messing around with wizards etc, my removable drive doesn't load on either - the light comes on so I know it's there but I can't get either to see it. It used to be J drive....
Another thing that has happened is that if the drive if not connected, I just have the "normal" list of drives.
If I put in the removable drive, a network icon appears that says
memory card on 'HP0016354008c9' (Z:)
This seems to be the networked/wireless printer but it's not shown unless I put the removable drive in.....
I've done all the usual checks in hardware lists etc., but it's just not there.....
How do I get the computers to "see" the removable drive again???
I'm def NOT an expert - hence the mess..... Help!
