Ok, I got a net book and I want to be able to access the external hd that's connected to my main computer. My net book has W7 Starter and my main computer has Vista Home Premium 64x. They're both in the same workgroup, the external hd is shared, when I go into my network I can see my main PC and can go into it where it shows the 'public folders' and the external hd, but when I go to access the external hd, it says that I don't have permission. I can access the 'public folders' on the main pc, and I have sharing enabled on both of them (network discovery, file sharing, public folder sharing, printer sharing, and password protected sharing). Also, when I try to access the e-hd, I don't get a password prompt, so it's not like a bad password or anything. I've also tried enabling a folder for sharing (instead of just the whole drive, to see if that was the issue) and I couldn't access that, either.
