That error message is typical when
a. You don't have an account on the server or device that shares the folder and files.
b. A firewall blocked it.
c. When you connected to the WiFi you didn't select "Home" network.
d. Some other antivirus suite is blocking this (just to be safe?)
Be sure to check LaCie's web site for an update of their helper apps.
I have a LaCie Network Space Max 2TB NAS connected to my home network. All was working fine recently with it.
I just purchased a new laptop (HP Elitebook 8570w) and I am unable to connect this laptop to that network drive. LaCie requires a application "LaCie Network Assistant" to help detect the drive. This software tells you the IP address and other info about the drive. I have another home PC and my old laptop on the same network and these all connect to the drive properly. I installed the LaCie network assistant on the new laptop and I can physically see the drive in the LaCie network assistant. I also can type the IP address in a new browser window and log into the drive. I see the drive listed as a computer in my network. All of these are good signs. However as soon as I try to access the drive while looking in the network explorer window I get a error saying that this computer cannot be accessed.
The question here is that it doesn't appear it is actually a issue with the drive as other machines can access it. Is there something in windows or the network that is keeping me from being able to access this on my new machine. Is it possible there is some additional update, driver, software I need to install to connect to this?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
