So I just got a new MB, and am attempting to transfer files via an ethernet cable. Mostly iTunes and documents. I spent most of the afternoon trying to connect it w/basically no success. It connected once, and I started to transfer my iTunes, and when I came back, it was disconnected. I have no clue what I did to get it to connect that time, but every other time I try I get "a volume failed to mount" message. I might be putting in the wrong sharename. I type the name of my dell (running vista). IP address is right. Thanks for the help. Its greatly appreciated.
