Although my Western Digital MyBook World Edition is formatted in NTFS I
and (many, many) other folks are experiencing the exact same trauma as
you are trying to access it, particularly with the new Vista Backup
I have attempted most, but not all, of the fixes mentioned by Kerry,
but to no avail.
The "Receive Window Auto Tuning" thing is a new one on me, which I'm a
bit dubious about, but at this point I'll try anything.
The fact that no less than 5 of my clients, all with NAS drives which
worked flawlessly under XP Professional, now have the same nightmare to
deal with proves that something is Rotten in Denmark (or Redmond, as the
case may be).
I'm usually not a chronic complainer and I don't mind doing hours or
research on a problem with Vista if it eventually bears fruit, but in
this instance I (and seemingly everybody else) have simply hit a brick
wall, which means in this case the problem is definitely not "BTKATC"
(Between The Keyboard And The Chair).
Whether these drives run on Samba 1.0 or 3.0 Microsoft is obligated to
provide some sort of backward compatibility with them; expecting Western
Digital, Seagate, Buffalo, or Iomega to update the operating systems on
what was probably a fairly inexpensive drive to begin with is probably
not going to happen. The fact that they all worked just fine under XP
proves that it can't be too great a leap for MS to keep them in the
"technology loop" for Vista as well.
Accordingly I don't think it's too much to ask that some real, live
Microsoft employees "get with the program" and give us some much-needed
and well-deserved tech support; I mean, it's not like we haven't tried
to help ourselves at this point.
Well, here's hoping, anyway...
