Alas, no joy whatso-blinkin-ever!
I have tried deleting the spaces in the share names and they are now called "PCE" and "PCF". I have also tried using the set-up of
<name>PC DRIVE E</name>
<name>PC DRIVE F</name>
and this makes not one jot of difference. One thing I have
learned is that if the share name is different in the .xml file and on the drive that I am trying to share, then I get a different error message saying that it cannot be found, so I don't think it's anything to do with the name of the share itself.
Does anyone know what the error message "Invalid handle" refers to because this is probably the best road to go down now.
tbell83, thanks for the time and obvious effort that you put into your reply. Much appreciated, amigo. If you are the man I think your are, I'm sure you won't want to leave this nut uncracked. As for disabling simple file sharing in the folder options under the view tab, i use Windows XP home edition and this option is not available to me (or not listed anyway), so I cannot disable this. Would this affect just the PC drives and not the other folders anyway?
I must admit I am totally lost. I am happy to follow in the footsteps of giants and am good at following instructuions to the letter but when I do everything (I think) right and it still doesn't work, then that's me stumped. "Invalid handle" mean anything to anyone???
Please help because the reason I'm desperate to do this would be to have the equivalent of a 8gb playback of movies via 2 dvdr's with only a minor change as the disks swap over when playing back DVD-Backups. This would be of use to most people and alleviate the need for DVD compression programs and expensive (and untested) dual-layer burners.
So, I say again, any ideas totally desperate and depressed now
