Loosing External USB Share

Wed Jan 04, 2006 2:04 am

I have an XP Pro computer with an external Maxtor onetouch II usb drive. The drive has video files on it and I can add it as a share in XP by sharing the entire drive, going into the HD1000 and select it and it works fine. The problem is after a time the drive is no longer accessable from the HD1000. It shows the name under shares but it is not a folder and cannot be opened. I then have to go to the Roku and clear/rescan the shares, select it again and it then will work. I have to repeat this all of the time to access this external USB drive and I shouldn't have to. Any ideas?

Thanks for any input.

Darin

Just in case anyone else runs into this problem.....service pack 2 for xp seems to have solved the problem. The machine just had SP1.
