    XP PC not connecting to NAS Unit
    « on: November 04, 2008, 07:17:05 AM »
    I have installed a NAS storage device on a Company Network
    I can connect to & Map Drives to the NAS Shares from all but one PC
    All the PC are running XP, but only one is running XP SP3

    On the none-connecting PC I get as far as clickcing on the NAS Server in My Network Places then get the message "\\server is not accessible. You might not have permission etc. The Server Service is not started" & Enter Network Password box asking for the Username & Password to connect
    I know the Username & Password to access the NAS are correct as I've tested them on another PC

    Could it be SP3 is the problem ?

    Any thought appreciated

    try going back to SP2 and see if it works. If so then I would say that SP3 was the problem.
