Software :: Can't View Shared Folder(s) In Finder?

May 21, 2009

I'm connected via Airport to my company's wireless network. Last week I was able to connect to this network via my Macbook. Went home this weekend, come back and now I can connect and browse the internet, but I can't view the "Shared" folder with other people's public folders and shared files. Any idea what may be wrong?

I don't believe anything has changed, as over the weekend all I did was connect to two wireless networks at my house.

I have no idea what's causing this, and it's making it difficult to retrieve files I need for certain projects.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Name Of User In Shared Folder @ Finder?

Apr 14, 2012

I try to buy music in iTunes. I learned that I have not set correctly the rights on the shared folder in the Finder. I tried to correct the rights to read and write for all three user groups, it´s still not working.I figured that one of the three users is not correct:

1. system (me)

2. wheel

3. everyone 

In my case, it´s not showing system, but it´s stating "loading" with a ?.I think I can´t buy music cause of the missing name in the shared folder, right?

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.

Applications :: View A Shared Calendar In Entourage?

Jan 21, 2009

I work in an office that has a mix of Macs running Entourage, and PC's running Outlook.

To collaborate better, I have setup an office calendar in Outlook, which I have shared with the rest of the office. Everyone using Outlook has added the calendar and is now using it.

The Entourage users in the office are not so please with me (I implemented the Exchange system so everyone is mad at me because it's not working!).

However, I get stuck at step #3 - we don't have an 'advanced' button in the bottom left hand corner of the window. So now I am stuck!

OS X :: No List Of Shared Computers In Finder

Jan 13, 2009

I am having problem with my Mac Air. For some reason when I go to Finder, there is no list of Shared computers. However, when I open Finder on my MacBook Pro it shows all shared computers in the area. From my MacBook Pro I can see the shared Mac Air, but nothing in shared of Mac Air. All shared setting on on MacBook Pro. Plus there more shared computers on the network. I think something wrong with Mac Air settings.

OS X :: Shared Drive Showing Up In Finder?

Sep 8, 2009

New user here, I'm showing "your-w92*******" I blanked out the rest, with a little monitor icon under "SHARED" in my finder? Any clue as to what it is and how I can get rid of it? If I right click I only get Open or Get Info as options. If I click Open I get "Connection Failed". If I click on Get Info it displays "PC Server" under kind. I did try to get my MBP to print in my PCs HP printer (unsucessfully) using cups. So I don't know if that had anything to do with it. I'd just like to delete it but don't know how.

OS X :: Downloaded 10.6.6. And Shared Section On Finder Disappeared?

Jan 6, 2011

I downloaded and installed the updates for the OS and now there is no "shared" section in the finder at all. Shared items are checked in the preferences. Selecting "go" and "network" doesn't do anything. I checked in the system preferences and the name of the workgroup is correct. The other computers in the workgroup can see my shared folders, but I can no longer see anything shared.

OS X :: Finder - Shared Computer Drive Bewilderment

Jan 2, 2009

I am trying to find out how to change the way finder presents itself while it is looking at a shared computer, because it appears to be doing this incorrectly, or is messed up some how. If you look at the screen shot of the highlighted drives of this shared computer, you will notice there are multiple instances of drive J and I would like to remove the repeated link. Also some of the drives have names associated with them, while others do not. I cannot figure out why some take the name given to the drive under windows in the macs finder window and why some do not? To throw another odd question in, drive G is not labeled movies anywhere, but rather is a drive labeled TV Shows under windows. Rebooting does nothing, as this has been there for months, even after a restore.

OS X :: How Do I Remove A Shared Device From The Finder Sidebar

Mar 6, 2009

I've googled and search here, and I just can't find the answer to this.

I renamed one of my computers at home. Now both instances of it show up in the Shared section of the finder sidebar and I can't remove the old one. When I do a Get Info, it shows as a PC Server, but I can't actually access anything on it. Is there any way to keep this from showing up?

OS X :: Macs Not Show Up In Finder Shared List

Aug 3, 2009

I just got an iMac. For the first few hours it was turned on, my MBP showed up in the iMac's Finder, and vice versa. However now, for the past two days, neither Mac has shown up in the others Finder. Connecting to afp://[their ip address] lets me see the public folders, but I still can't use the shared iTunes libraries, or share screens.

The same thing happened with the MBP and other Windows/Linux devices on the network, as well as my jailbroken iPod with Netatalk installed, but I just chalked that up to the klugey nature of mixed networking. Guess that wasn't the problem.

OS X :: Unexpected Shared Server Appearing In Finder?

May 1, 2010

Well, I've never seen this before. I did not (intentionally) connect to this server listed under Shared in the sidebar... so where did it come from and how can I ditch it? Get Info only tells me it's a PC server

My file sharing is turned off, etc. Little Snitch is not flagging any unexpected network activity. I'm very puzzled.

As a new Mac user and as the result of my machinations in the iMac Lion OS, I managed to wind up with an extra PC showing in the Shared section of the Finder Sidebar. I show my wife's PC and Time Capsule but I have an extra PC named Gerry581e of which I have no idea. I would like to know how to delete it from the list.

OS X Mavericks :: Unknown User On Shared Network In Finder

Aug 22, 2014

After downloading a few new apps tonight, both off the App Store and Safari, I noticed that s6761bm0t3r1 had been newly listed under shared.

One of the apps i downloaded ended up changing my homepage and search engine which was annoying but not too unusual.

After changing things back to usual I went to look through finder to see if anything unwanted had been downloaded and that's when i noticed it.  I know it's not my printer because i turned my printer on and it showed up under a different nameI have never had any other machines connect like this to my mac that i know of besides my printerWhen i try to click more info it just keeps on fetching and won't show anythingWhen i try to double click on it it tries to connect and soon after says Connection failedI don't know if it's from something i downloaded but I first noticed it immediately afterwards so I'm thinking it is

MacBook Pro :: Finder Closes When Try To Access Shared Computers

Jun 6, 2014

I'm running Mavericks on my late 2013 MacBook Pro. When I try to access a shared computer on my network, the Finder window closes as soon as I click on the computer I want to access. File sharing is turned on on the target computers, both iMacs, one is running Mavericks and the other is running Mountain Lion. The iMacs can access the MacBook Pro and each other without a problem. Firewall is not on on the iMac. Is there a setting I am missing

OS X :: Shared Folder Label Over Mac HD?

Jun 14, 2009

I set up my Macbook to share to my lowly PC, that was fine, but now I get a bar that says Shared Folder when I access the hard drive in my macbook from my macbook. Its incredibly irritating. I tried to 'fix' it but all I did was disallow permissions to my HD and was unable to access anything, had to re-install OSX to get it to work.

I did a search of the forums, but all I got was how to set up to share a folder, I got that part working fine.This is a picture of my Macbooks hd in Finder this is frustrating me, If i was on a PC something this simple would be easy, but Im still learning the ins and outs of OSX

OS X Yosemite :: Clearing Duplicate Computers In Shared Finder Sidebar

Dec 8, 2014

In the Finder sidebar under shared computers, we seem to be getting duplicates.  Admin Mac (1), Admin Mac (2) (when it's the same computer).  How do I clear out this list so that we don't have 13 Admin Mac's on our list? 

I have gone through and turned off sharing preferences restarted computers and turned Sharing preferences back on.  I now see the correct computer but can't get rid of the duplicates now.

OS X :: Connect To A Windows 7 Shared Folder?

Dec 4, 2010

So basically, I was given a decent windows machine for free, and I'm trying to convert it into a place where all our family's files can be accessed.

However, I'm having a real tough time trying to connect to the windows 7 computer. I've tried Go>Connect to Server and put in "smb://" then the IP address ( in this case), and I get the error message saying I should check my IP address and contact my system's administrator.

Now, the part that baffles me the most is that in the finder left hand sidebar, I can see the homeserver and the other computer on the network. When I try to connect to either one of them, it takes a good 15 minutes then the computer gives up, even when I connect with the administrator username and password.

Is it a problem with my computer? I've got them all on the same workgroup (MSHOME) and are connected to the same router.
