MacBook Pro :: Accessing Shared Folders On Windows 7 - Login Failure

Dec 7, 2014

After updating my Macbook to 10.10.1, My Windows 7 machine can't log in to the shared folders.

I keep getting an error: " Log in failure: unknowing username or bad password " 

No settings have been changed on my Windows Machine and everything was working fine till updating my Macbook to 10.10.1 

However my Macbook can still connect to the shared folders on my Windows 7 Machine.... Also I have checked the LmCompatibilityLevel on Windows and all seems okay.

OS X :: Accessing A Mac Shared Printer From Windows?

Apr 9, 2010

I have a network consisting of three Macs and a PC running Windows XP. One of my printers (a Canon Pixma MP830) is USB-connected to one of the Macs with sharing turned on. Thus, I am able to print to this device from any of the Macs. How can I access this shared printer from the Windows device? I can't determine an IP address because the printer doesn't have one.

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?

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 :: 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.

OS X :: How To Connect With Server For Accessing Shared Drives

Jul 8, 2009

I'm sure this thread is floating around here already but I'm a little too frustrated to look. I'm having trouble connecting my Mac to a network server at my office in order to access a shared drive on the network. I can't seem to identify the network share path to fill in the Server Address: field on the Connect to Server window. I have the IP address for the server but am uncertain if it's the same thing as it doesn't seem to be working. Also, I'm not certain what drive syntax the network is running on; whether it's a ftp, afp, or smb.

OS X :: Accessing Other Users' Home Folders?

Feb 27, 2009

So I turned on my computers guest account today and while logged onto my username I tried to access the Guest's desktop folder. I was able to open the home folder but it said I was denied access to all the folders inside it, though I'm an administrator. It seems if I hit get info and add myself to the access list I can get into a folder, but is there a simpler way?

OS X Yosemite :: IMessage Login Failure

Dec 10, 2014

iMessage, or message whatever it's called. It's message app but when I try to login shows iMessage screen.Up till last night messages was working fine on my Yosemite Mac, iPod touch and my old iPod touch.

I did the 8.1.2 update on my iPod and when I started my Mac up it asked for an iMessage log in, never did this before. Typed the correct password and it just sits there with the gear wheel spinning beside my Apple id, tried changing DNS, deleted keychain passwords, switched messages off/on on the the other devices as well as iCloud. The other devices still work on the same router. Tried switching from wired, which it usually operates on to wi-fi only and deleted iMessages preferences, nothing.

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.

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.

I installed Lion Server on a MacMini  to run a shared Wiki calendar, and all is quite well, I got the Wiki calendar page up and running and the iCal clients have successfully subscribed to it.The problem: external users can'tl log in from the internet.On our LAN they can reach the Wiki Home page at http://10.x.y.z/wiki but how do they log in from the internet ?We have a DynDNS host name, but [url] brings up an empty page.I forwarded port 8080 to our server. I did checkip -checkhostname and it looked alright to me. The server has a FQDN that points to 10.x.y.z and the reverse lookup points to the server name.

OS X :: Not Accessing A Windows Only Website

Sep 1, 2010

I start a new job next week, and I will be doing a professional qualification alongside it. I have work to cover before I start, the information is all on a website. It specifies that you need windows and internet explorer to access the information. I can log in, but when I try to load the information, a new window opens, but the literature doesn't load. It works on a windows PC at the internet cafe however.

Does anyone have any ideas about how I could access the information, I have already tried changing the user agent on safari to internet explorer which hasn't helped. Anything I can do short of parallels?!

I've been struggling all week trying to share a drive out from a mac and mount it remotely onto a windows 7 machine. Also I haven't been able to see any of my macs in the network in windows explorer on the windows 7 machine.

I found this somewhere else on the web so can't take the credit, but it works for me and I can see my whole network, macs, windows and shared folders from either, all on windows 7 now.

OS X :: Accessing A Failing OS X Partition From WIndows XP

Apr 21, 2010

We have a client who has a MAC Mini running OS X. System is not booting into the OS, its freezing up during boot process. Data on the hard drive is critical to the user.

- The hardware utility on the OS X install cd says there's no problems, but when removed from the mini, connected to a PC, and tested using bootable cd IBM Drive Fitness Test and Seagate Seatools, the drive fails both tests.

- The drive has been connected to our data transfer system (running Windows XP) and unsurprisingly XP sees the drive in disk managment, but doesn't see the partition in Explorer.

- Research online led us to HFSExplorer, which dies see the MAC partition and file tree. But any attempt to extract files results in a Java runtime error saying that the source cannot be accessed. Once this error is received, HFSExplorer crashes and must be relaunched, and will not detect the MAC partition again until the computer is hard shutdown and restarted. THe physical drive vanishes from disk managment when the error occurs also.

- Further research led us to MacDrive, which mounts the drive (after reporting that it detected an error and asking if we still want to mount). We can again browse the file tree, but as soon as we attempt to copy anything, it fails and the explorer window with the MAC partiton vanishes. Again, the system must be hard restarted in order to restore access to the partition.

- Found a repair utility in the MACDrive program. Running that results in the error "80070002: The system cannont find the file specified."

- I'm out of ideas at this point. Anyone have any advice? As I said, the drive contains data critical to the client.
