    I'm new to mac. I have a MacBook- I've hooked it up to my local network like I did with my Windows PC. My windows PC, I could go to 'My Network' and find the Storage Device and connect to it.

    On this Mac, I can not find that option. Please help!
    Ask if you need any further information- I'll try and let you know as much as I can

    after reinstalling O.S. - I found it real easy. Not sure what the problem was before

    Have you turned on file sharing in System Preferences under Sharing?

    Also, what kind of storage device is it? If it's a Windows share, you'll have to make sure SMB sharing is turned on.
