New machine, updated to 10.5.5. I've bought LaCie Ethernet disk mini - 1Tb drive w 10/100/Gbit and USB - which is plugged in to my 10/100 network so that I can share it between 2-3 Macs. A friend has this drive which works well on similar small network, so I thought it was a good bet.
LaCie IPConfigurator used DHCP to assign IP address and then took me to drive "front end" (browser based) to create shares, user etc. Shares set up as All types, ie Windows / Apple / HTTP / FTP. I'm no expert, so thought All the best choice. Everything shows OK in the status page, so Logout.
Restart, and use Finder/Go/Connect to Server, which shows up afp://192.168.07. But when I try to collect that, I get a message: "The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in afp://192.168.07 could not be read or written. (Error code -36).
Tried 2-3 times to connect, no joy. Ran configurator again, deleted shares and user, created new, still no good. GO sees the IP address, but then gives same error message.
HELP! I need to put 300G of photos and artwork on the drive for a big project, so it is all accessible in one place.
