    hey all having probs with file sharing at the mo. I have a g5 with os x 10.4.11 running on it and trying to acess files on it from my mac book with 10.5.4. When you look at the shared list in the finder window the g5 shows up as a pc server icon (beige monitor with the bsod on it), and when i try to manually try to connect to it (cmd k) get the following err msg;

    The finder could not complete the operation because come data in "afp://g5.local"could not be read or written.
    (error code -36)

    any ideas plz shoot my way as this is really doing my nut in lol

    Somewhere between my imagination and reality
    Well if you have pc sharing enabled then you need to use smb://
    so CMD+K then type SMB://my-g5-address
