    I have two windows computers at my home and I was able to see their shared folder from my mac (sidebar in Finder). But now they are no longer visible. I checked windows settings and all sharing options are enabled.

    I want to access windows shared folders from my mac, but do not want to share my mac with windows computers. Need your help.

    I'm having the same issue, the new MacBook with Lion (on wifi if that makes a difference) can't see the shared windows folders. But the only G5 running Leopard on ethernet can see and use the same shared folders.

    The MacBook is online with full internet access so it's not a wifi issue.

    Make sure the workgroup setting on the macbook is the same as on the windoze computers. It's in network settings->advanced->wins
