    check your pc's nic to make sure it isn't powering off to save energy.

    if you keep a constant ping going from the pc to the mac, does this reoccur?

    win 7 home premium or pro?

    simple file sharing off?

    home sharing off?

    does the mac have OD?

    if you ping FROM the mac TO the PC, do you see it dropping off at the same time you get the unmount error?

    Does this apply to your situation: http://www.cavaliercoder.com/blog/mac-osx-lion-file-sharing-connection-failed.html
