(I apologize if this is the wrong forum). So, here's the deal: I have a 250 GB external hard drive preformatted in NTFS. I am trying to network my Macbook and my PC in order to give the Mac access to this volume. I would like to keep it NTFS due to file size restrictions (of Fat 32) and the drive will be given back to someone who uses Windows exclusively. When I try to connect to the PC, I receive an error saying, "Could not connect to the server because the name or password is not correct." The problem is, I am never prompted to enter a password. I ran the wizard on Windows to create a small network. The workgroup is the same on both machines. I have tried doing it wirelessly and wired. I have enabled Windows and Personal Files Sharing on the Mac. I have disabled the firewall on the PC. I have set the volume up to share. When I look at the "Network," the workgroup of "Mshome" shows up; however, it shows up as being "Zero KB." In other words, there is no 'space' there. It has become rather frustrating. I don't know why it is telling me the name and password are incorrect when I haven't even entered the name or password. Yes, I have made sure my account has a password. I've run the network wizard several times--although I'm not sure if there are several different networks; I'm not sure where to even find that. When I use the "Go" and "Connect to server" I use the following syntax: smb://IP/Mac -- it doesn't work. I'm not even sure what to do at this point. I have installed MacFuse and the NTFS-3g driver on the Mac, but it seems rather slow and I'm nervous that it's buggy and I'll lose data. Your input is greatly appreciated.
