    Mapping Drives

    I have having an issue mapping a drive to a Windows XP PC (home edition) which runs our security cameras.
    I know I have done this in the past by creating an administrative account on the XP machine (Home) and using that user name and password to map the drive.
    From a windows machine I map the drive

    using XPHomePCname\administrator and then the password

    I keep getting the message

    the specified network password is not correct.

    I have reset the password a number of times and I cannot be entering the password incorrectly

    ??????

    Try specifying the computer name of the file host machine by putting this in the username box

    Machinename\username
