I'm trying to connect to my Windows Share from Ubuntu, and I can't access it although I can access my Users folder. The share works fine when I'm connecting from a Windows computer, so the problem lies between Ubuntu and Windows.
Here's an overview of what happens when I'm using smbclient -L 192.168.1.201
Domain=[TICK-PC] OS=[Windows 8.1 Pro 9600] Server=[Windows 8.1 Pro 6.3] Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- ADMIN$ Disk Administration à distance C$ Disk Partage par défaut E$ Disk Partage par défaut F$ Disk Partage par défaut IPC$ IPC IPC distant Media Disk print$ Disk Pilotes d’imprimantes Users Disk Connection to 192.168.1.201 failed (Error NT_STATUS_RESOURCE_NAME_NOT_FOUND) NetBIOS over TCP disabled -- no workgroup available
I tried to force the activation of NetBIOS over TCP, but it didn't fix it. I tried uninstalling Windows Live Sign in ID Assistant, it didn't fix it.
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.1.201/Media /mnt/Media -o username=tick
didn't work either :
mount error(5): Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
I'm at a loss atm any help please ?
Edit : I found out that I can share folders on my SDD and internal hard drive just fine, so the problem lies with the external HD.
