OS X :: Unable To Add Actual Shared Folders In Finder - Drag Drop Not Working

Nov 3, 2010

I've noticed that I can add folders from network shares (in this case samba) to my sidebar in finder but I can't seem to add the actual share folder.So if my server has the share stuff and inside stuff there is a folder named documents I can drag that folder to places in my sidebar but I can't do the same with stuff. Does anyone know of any solution to this?

OS X :: Bunch Of Shared Drives Or Folders Showed In My Finder Under Shared?

Feb 19, 2010

A couple of months ago I was at the head office and connected to the in house Wifi. When I did, a bunch of shared drives or folders showed in my finder under "Shared". I figured no biggie, when I got away from the head office they'd go away. But they didn't. And I can't figure out how to get rid of them.See attached photo.

Windows On Mac :: Can't Access Shared Folders From Xp?

Oct 30, 2008

I have installed windows xp and windows vista in my mac by VMware fusion (v 2.0 (116369))I used to access my shared folder from xp by the shortcut on the desktop, but suddenly I can't anymore when I click on the Z: drive (\.host) it gives me this message:

efers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.

and the weird thing is xp connected to the internet! if its connected to the internet thats mean there is a connection between mac and xp. However, everything is working fine in vista!

I did tried:
Restart windows
Restart Mac
Disconnect / Connect network adapter
Switched the adapter to NAT (which is the default) / Bridge / Host-only nothing happen any idea why is this happening or what am i missing?

OS X :: Can't Get It To Find Shared Folders On Macs

Jul 16, 2009

I have a new PC running Windows 7 RC, but I can't get it to find the shared folders on my Macs, nor can my Macs see the shared folders on the PC. Any ideas how to get at least one way working (preferably so that the Macs can see the PC).I'm running 10.5.7, and if I "Connect to Server" and dial in smb:// and the PCs IP address, I get a login window, but it won't let me log in. I have no password on the PC.

Also, I followed the advice in another post here,, but it didn't make any difference.

Software :: Mac OSX Cannot See Windows XP Shared Folders?

Oct 31, 2009

have a new IMac (OSX 10.5.8 Leopard) - I am a very new Mac user.

When I first I set up my Mac it immediately recognized the shared folders from my Windows XP machine. I did NOT have to configure networks or anything like that. I plugged in my Mac - the folders appeared in view. No problem.

But yesterday, in trying to repair issues on the Windows machine requiring that I disconnect net connection temporarily, Mac then showed a "lost connection" / disconnection to the shared folder. And from then on, it now cannot see the shared folders, nor can it even successfully ping the Windows pc.

Here's the current status:

Windows machine is hard wired - it CAN ping Mac right now. Mac is (and always has been) on router. It can NOT ping windows.

These machines are about 2 feet away from each other on the same net connection.

Because I have never had to especially configure either machine to see the other- I was afraid to continue trying to negotiate new networks - when there may be some other problem and I am not informed enough about Macs to determine what it is.

What I am really trying to do is move a large amount of files over to use on the Mac - and I would rather have it direct on the network then start saving many gigs to a separate drive then manually installing them.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Show All Shared Folders On Mac?

Feb 5, 2012

I have a Windows PC. It has lots of shared folders. Suppose the name of the PC is "WinPC1". If I use a Windows laptop, I could easily see all shared folders by typing "\WinPC1" in the address bar. 

Now, I am using a Mac. I know I can add specific folders by adding the server as "smb://WinPC1/<individual folder name>", but it cannot map the root "smb://WinPC1". Suppose there are 100 shared folders, then I would have 100 mounted folders on Mac. 

Is there any way to map the root folder, like in Windows PC? I mean I only want a mounted folder for the "smb://WinPC1", not "smb://WinPC1/docs", "smb://WinPC1/musics",... and so on.

OS X :: Unable To Access Folders / Folders Are Locked After Transferring Files From External Hd

Aug 28, 2009

I bought a Seagate Free Agent Go Flex External drive. I transferred all my files from my previous external HD. When I went to access my folders on my external HD, the folders are all locked, with Sharing and Permission section in the Information "Everyone: Read" only! I can't change any of the information or move things! All of them are locked and "read only." I know how to change it, but only manually, individually. I have several hundreds of folders and I don't want to manually change all of them to "Read & Write." Is their a way to let me re-set the folders to "Read & Write" easily??

OS X :: Unable To Access Shared Files / Internet Runs Fine

Jan 8, 2008

I recently upgraded my pc to vista. When i was using xp, my macbook (running leopard) picked up my shared folders on my home network just fine, and several other wireless networks... now despite having the shared folders in vista set up and the network configured... leopard is showing nothing....its as if there's no network there.

the internet runs fine (on the network) but it won't access my shared files.. so there are no network problems, its a software issue either with vista or leopard... what am i doing wrong?

OS X :: Unable To Read / Write / Eject Shared Network Volume?

Jul 24, 2008

I have my iMac and PC connected to each other through the ethernet. The iMac is set to read/write the shared network volumes on my PC. The Finder is used to set up the SMB connection. Everything works fine. Mac applications are able to read and write files to the PC.

However, after a day or so (during which the PC has been kept on, while the Mac has slept) problems occur. It seems as if it is possible to access the network volumes and even view the root directory. However, clicking on any directory will show a blank directory.

OS X :: Connecting To Vista Home Premium PC / Unable To Access Shared Files

Mar 21, 2009

I'm connecting my new Macbook Pro 15" running Snow Leopard, to my home network and of course it hooked up with my wireless router right away.

I have a NAS hard wired to a wireless router. The Mac sees all the folders and files just fine and can read/write.I have a Vista Home Premium PC hard wired to the same wireless router. The Users Folder is shared with full privileges as are the individual users folders. The firewall is off. It runs no "security software".

The Mac can see the Vista PC and also see the Users individual account folders but when I open them I can't see any of the files.I really don't know what direction to go. The Vista PC networked fine with an older Toshiba laptop that the Mac replaced.

I've discovered this weird thing and wonder if it's just my system.

IMac :: Unable To Organize Folders / Can't Find Options

Sep 11, 2010

Four years ago I bought the iMac I am using right now, I was a PC user (actually used Macs in the 90s) and I never knew if I was doing things properly. Since I am buying a new iMAc next week I need to know how to organize folders.

In my current iMac I have all my applications in the applications folder, I think that is ok. But for example, for my Photoshop and Flash projects I have made a folder in the Macintosh HD with my name and inside that folder I have many other folders. How should I organize my work? Should I put them in the documents folder or what?

OS X :: Unable To Change Sharing Permission In Finder For Folders

Apr 7, 2009

New folders created on a network are unable to be accessed by other users on the same network in Leopard OSX 10.5.6. The original user is the only one able to access the folder. You should be able to go to 'Get Info' on the folder and change sharing and permissions at the original user's mac, so that all users on the network are able to read and write to that folder. Leopard OSX doesn't not allow the change to be made. The selections are not ghosted out, but the appear available to be selected. No matter which you choose 'read & write', 'read only' the 'no access' option remains. We can go to a different mac on the network that has Tiger OSX and change the sharing and permissions of the folder in question. Why can't I easily do the same on the originating mac?

OS X :: Unable To Arrange Folders / Finder Not Remembering Preferences

Jun 21, 2009

I can't seem to get my applications folder to remember to arrange itself by name. I can change it while in the folder... but when I exit it and go back into it; it's reset to the way it was...

Also, upon completion of setting up my MBP, an error message occurred notifying me that something didn't complete or go through... however I can click somewhere in one of my folders to go back to it. Does anybody know what this is? I can't remember what it said earlier...

Finally... in Mail... is there a way to get rid of the "RSS feeds" thing? Also, I have an AOL account and I can't stand the fact that every time I open mail a new subfolder appears called "Saved IM's"... why? I have never used it and keep deleting it. Also... now there's "mailboxes" with just inbox, sent, and trash.... which is nice but then also my email address has its own menu under it?
