    With windows 7 accessing my music folders on my pc using my MacBook pro was simple now since the windows 8 upgrade I cannot access the media partition on my hdd.. I have shared the folder and the drive but I get this message on my mac "the operation can't be completed because the original item for"... now I know it is not the mac as nothing has changed on that so it must be something I am doing wrong with windows 8 or is it something else I am doing wrong with osx mountain lion

    Make sure when sharing from Windows 8 & Windows 7 you use 'Advanced Sharing' and not the Home Group when sharing to Macs.
