    I am using Apple Script to mount various network shares on my WinXP computer. Sometimes the connection fails, but if I run it again it works. Any ideas who I can figure out why the failure?

    Here is the code I am using.

    mount volume "smb://WORKGROUPNAME;COMPUTERNAME/My Pictures"

    The error I get sometimes is

    An error of type -36 has occurred.

    BTW, I tried using Automator to do this, but the space in "My Pictures" kept screwing Automator up and it would never connect.

    I have a bug report in on it. I know others do as well. The more bug reports they see the more likely it is to get done.
