Our 844's are windows based. My computer is a mac. I have windows file sharing on and can see the mac from the 844 but I can't see the drive. It's a 250gb maxtor external fire wire drive. Any suggestions? I can see my mac but not the drive attached to it.

Did you set up to share the external drive in the MacOS? It's been almost three years since I've sat in front of a Mac but that's what I had to do to see external Mac Drives on a network back then.

I don't really see an option for sharing the drive. The only sharing options are for the mac in general.

MacOsX will by default only share the home directory of the current user. To share other directories/volumes, use Sharepoints:

Forgot to mention that this applies to sharing over Samba. Sharing Mac to Mac should make all volumes available.

Thanks it worked like a charm. Is there a version or another way to see older Mac OS?
