I have a Mybook World Edition 500GB and did the original setup with Mionet from Windows XP. It worked fine on my MacBook Pro with smb, I used it for TimeMachine so far. Then I found out that I couldn't use Mionet on my Mac so I disabled it.
Now I'm tryin to backup my Windows Partition (Boot Camp). When I type in the IP adress of my MBWE, I can see the folders inside but when I try to open them the explorer asks for username and password. But after entering the correct login information I'm getting an error message something like "… no permission to use this network resorce - please ask server administrator…" (in German). This is particularely confusing since I am using the same login with my Mac.
I spent hours looking for solutions in several forums but haven't found one. Since I'm a mac user I know nothing about Linux and very little about Windows so I didn't even start hacking the MBWE. A lot of information in the forums seem to require some more basic knowledge on Linux that I don't have. First of all, how can I tell if samba works at all on my Windows machine?
I'd really apprechiate some advice! Thanks in advance…
