I have a Windows 7 computer on my local network that hosts all my media. I've shared relevant folders there without any limitation, so anyone should be able to access the files without providing a login. (The WLAN itself has a passcode, so I don't need per-machine security.)
- I can see this Windows machine when I navigate to
- I can navigate into it and see a lot of shares in
- I can open some of the shares, e.g.
but not e.g.
- I get the error:Unable to mount location: Failed to mount Windows share.
Why can I access some of the Windows shares on this computer, but not others?
I believe that I have shared them the same way.
