windows networking: nas box not visible in windows explorer

November 28, 2012 at 12:58:44
Specs: Windows 7

I have a small mixed peer-to-peer network comprising 2 Win7 PCs, an iMac and a Win7 laptop and 2 little file servers: a Netgear Stora and a LaCie-2big.
Stora is correctly listed under the Network part of Windows Explorer, but LaCie isn't, although I have been able to map a drive to a share on LaCie
No problem accessing files etc.
Why would the LaCie not be displayed in the Explorer file tree? Anybody got any ideas?
Thanks for any help

I don't see my Unix or Linux box in Explorer because it's a different file system. Is LaCie NTFS?

Perhaps its not running netbios over tcp/ip. See if you have a option to enable that.

Most NAS boxes I have worked with are *nix based as is mine at home. It shows all the shares seemlessly.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
