I'm having no luck making a Windows 7 folder write accessible to XP. I've turned off password protected sharing and given both "Everyone" and "Guest" read/write permission. I can access the folder, but whenever I try to transfer a file to it, I get:

"Error Copying File or Folder - Cannot copy ____: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."

Any suggestions?

I'm pretty stumped on this one and greatly appreciate any advice given. I am working on a network with 3 Win 7 Pro machines and one XP machine. This network needs to run a third party program that's installation requires to copy of a certain folder from
a "server" to the client machine, then run a batch file within to complete the setup.

When transferring this folder over to the client machine it transfer all but a handful of files that say that you must have permission from the computer administrator in order to complete this action. It doesn't specify, but I assume that it means the "server".
If completing the setup process without the files, it seems to complete successfully but the programs do not function acceptably (missing data).

The Windows XP machine accepted the transfer, completed successfully, and is properly communicating with the WIN 7 "server". I am only receiving this issue from the other 2 WIN 7 Pro Machines.
All accounts are local administrators, joined on a homegroup with Network Discovery, File and Printer Sharing, and Public Folder Sharing turned on, Password Protected Sharing turned off, and am allowing Windows to manage homegroup connections. The folder
bring shared and mapped on the other computers is directly in the C:\ directory with read/write permissions granted to Everyone, the local user, and local administrators.
I have tried playing around with different combinations of these permission... Read more

How can I make this read and write permission?

You can do this by going into the C:>Users>Public folder properties, click the Sharing tab then click on the Advanced Sharing button showing in the first picture.

Click the box to share the folder like in the second picture, at that point the Permissions button will light up.

Click the permissions button, Add check marks for full control "third picture" then hit the Apply button, on all windows click Ok etc.

At this point the Public folder and it's subfolder will have read/write access.

I am applying a solution to take backup from clients machine to a shared folder location, the share management will be done through their AD accounts through a backup application.

However, I want to prevent user from accessing the shared folder location and deleting contents
it would be possible to use another account for shared file access but am looking for better option.

if Anything from the following can be done it should be great:
- Modifying permissions to allow writing and modifying content but not deleting
- Disable web access to shared location through windows explorer
- Only allowing access to shared location through the backup application in any way
Really appreciate any help.

A:Shared folder, write but not delete

not done any Active Directory work for a while but I'm sure the delete permission was separate so a deny could be applied the the delete for the group concerned who would have the other permissions, you would need to check the stacking of the actual permissions to be sure though, a deny is a dangerous thing for sysdmins as you often forget what groups you've assigned yourself as for testing

Also it's worth having a look at Sysinternals as I think they still have some advanced AD tools

As most of the others should be possible through normal NTFS permissions and even the parental controls it should be possible using Group Policy

- I have three PCs - two running Win 7 Home Premium ("clients") and one running Win 7 Ultimate ("server").

- I wish to use one of the server PC's HDD to store a backup of critical files of the two client PCs using folder sharing.

- All three are on the same homegroup (took me ages to achieve this - only managed once syncronied all three clocks, but that's another story...).

- I set up a uid and password for the server PC, will refer to it as "john".

- I created a folder on the server HDD called "backup" under which the backup will be stored. The folder and all its sub-folders are shared.

- I can see and access this folder and its sub-folders from both client PCs.

- I verified that "john" is the owner of the backup folder and all the files/sub-folders it holds. I also verified that "john" has read/write/full control rights for the backup folder and all its sub-folders.

However, as commonly reported , I am unable to change the "read only" permission from the "backup" folder. Hence (I am guessing that this is the reason) I cannot write anything to it ar its sub-folders from the client PCs. I can un-tick the read-only box, click OK, but when returning it is still there...

I already tried "attrib -s -r e:\backup" where e is the HDD leter on the server PC, but it has no effect.

Any idea how to get around this?

For some reason or other I cannot play his music files or copy his music files when trying to access the music1 folder on his desktop.

I am trying to access files in a shared folder on my Vista PC from my XP laptop, through my wireless home network, but when I go to open a file (e.g., Word Document) it opens as "Read-Only". I noticed the shared folder on the Vista PC has the "read-only" attribute selected on its properties. I've tried unselecting the attribute, but it reverts to "read-only" every time I do this. The folder I'm sharing is the "Documents" folder on the Vista PC. All of the files I want to access from the XP laptop are in this folder and I don't want to bother with moving them to the "Public" folder in Vista.

Is it even possible to do what I'm trying to do? That is, access files on the Vista PC from the XP laptop through a wireless home network, and be able to make changes to the documents so they save on the Vista PC?

I have followed several step-by-step guides on file, folder, and printer sharing in Vista, and have changed all the permissions to make sure I'm able to access the shared folder from the XP laptop. I've changed the firewall settings on Norton 360, but that hasn't helped either. I've also installed the LLTD responder hotfix on the XP.

Both computers belong to the same workgroup and the network is set to "Private".

Hi i'm no expert on this topic by any means, and i hope someone else can come along with a better explanation than i can, but it seems to me that your system (network) is treating the xp laptop as a 'slave' which can access but not alter data on the main pc, i would check to see if there are any settings that might apply to this, or maybe (just a guess) you may have to sign on as administrator on your xp laptop. like i say it's really not my field but hey, you can give it a go for what it's worth. sorry i can't be of much more help to you.

I have a Gateway Computer running Windows 98. MY problem concerns a Philips 3610 Read/Write - Write CD. It has always been a problem i.e. - balky. I am using Adaptec Easy CD Creator 3.5 software. I can burn a CD but it is only readable on the Philips. I can't get it to initialize on the other CD drive on the computer or on the drive in my wife's Compaq laptop. I had to transfer a 5MEG file to her computer and finally had to install an old Zip Drive to do it. Sometimes (sometimes not) I get an error message after the CD is burned, but it reads OK in the parent drive.

Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Also, went to Philips website to try to find new drivers - It's lousy!

A:Philips 3610 Read/Write - Write CD

I trust you have the updates from Adaptec/Roxio.

Try the Sony CD Extreme software: http://sony.storagesupport.com/dlag...m/dsonyweb/cdrw/SonyCDExtreme1.3.390Setup.exe It should work fine with your burner. If you just select “data” in the opening wizard it will record session at once, close the session so it can be read and leave the disc open so you can add more stuff. Very robust software – make sure you don’t use a formatted CD. If that still doesn’t work I suggest trying some different blank media.

If you are recording to a formatted CD then you are packet writing and it can’t be read on any other computer until you install the reader for it from http://www.roxio.com

When I try to rename a folder on the D: partition that used to be a Windows XP recovery partition that has some Pokemon commissions in it, I get this message.
"This folder is shared with other people
If you rename this folder, it will no longer be shared."
 
But the folder is not shared nor has it ever been.
 
What is going on? Why does Windows 7 think that it is shared?

A:“This folder is shared with other people” when renaming not shared folder

Hello there, 
 
This happens because of the way the Access Control List is queried by Windows Explorer to determine if the folder is shared. Because this folder you tried to rename is a child folder of a parent folder and the two folders have a different security entries, Windows will treat as a shared folder. This causes Explorer to give you the warning that you received. 
 
​Just double check, this must be a shared folder. 
 
Hope this helps!

Hello everyone,

I'm using a laptop (with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed) as a DVR and media streamer to all other devices in the house.
My TV recordings are recorded into a temporary folder and when the recording is finished the program moves the files into the My Videos folder.

The My Videos folder is shared so we can watch the recordings from the Xbox downstairs or other Windows 7 devices in the house.
This worked pretty well in the past but for some reason new recordings (or downloads) aren't shared by default anymore. All files have a small lock icon (shared with nobody) and I have to manually share new files within an already shared folder.

This is pretty annoying and takes away the convenience.

I would appreciate any tip to fix this problem to have all files in the shared folder(s) shared by default.

Thanks in advance!

A:New files aren't shared in shared folder

It's easy once you know how, just right click the C:/Video's folder and choose properties, Security tab then Advanced button, then just put a check mark where it says "Replace all Child Object Permission Entries with Inheritable Permissions Entries from this Object, then hit Apply, OK....this will fix the problem you described.

Hello. I've recently set up a HomeGroup for my computers to easily share my media files over many computers, especially between my desktop computer and my Sony Vaio (since it's missing a DVD-player and I often bring it with me when traveling to watch movies.

However, when I send files through the HomeGroup (copy them from the shared libraries off my other computer and puts them in the local libraries instead, to be able to use them when the computers are not connected) I found that all the files ends up Read-only, which is not a problem in itself, but since I prefer to add subtitles (in VLC) it seems like it is a problem.

I noticed that all the videos uses the same subtitle, even though I've not chosen it for that particular video, and when I try to change it adds the new subtitle in the list and "activates" it, but nothing changes. It's still the same one in the video. I know this may be something bad with VLC, but since it works fine when the files are not read-only I'd prefer to fix that instead of using another program.

Also, I've tried just unchecking the boxes in properties, but every time I close the properties window, it gets re-checked. I've now got the same problem on my desktop computer with the files I've previously shared, even though I've removed them from the library list.

Hey everyone.

I use both Linux (Ubuntu 10.04, 2.6.33-AMD64) and Windows 7 professional, and sometimes I get a little boggled at the apparent lack of functionality in W7 in the following situation.

I have a network share in the root of my drive that I've called "DropBox" where my boss and I can both put files to be shared via the network. I have a bunch of files in "Downloads" directory that I'd like to be able to share at various times, but would rather not have my downloads directory directly shared as it violates my sense of order. IE, I would much rather have one shared folder from which you can reach all the other content I need to share on the drive, and if I need to un-share something, simply delete the shortcut, and Voila! instant anti-sharing.

Figure 1. Clean Sharing


In Ubuntu, you can create a symlink within a shared folder that points to a non shared folder which allows network users to access that non-shared folder.

Does this functionality exist in W7?

Thanks,
NYTCG

A:Shared Shortcut to non-shared folder.

Okay, so I solved this issue on my own =) TGFG! The answer lies in the MKLink command.

Specifically: mklink /D /J Downloads "C:\Users\Robert\Downloads\"

Works like a charm. All networked machines have access to my non-shared directory through the shared folder, and it looks nice and clean on the viewers end.

Thanks for letting me rubber duck this one.

A:Win 7 PC will not allow other PC to read/write and others PC not seen

Hello there,

From the problematic PC, can you please try this?

Click on Start, in Search and Programs Files box type \\IPAddress\SharedFolderName (for ex. \\10.1.1.3\TimFolder) then press enter, see if you're able to access the other computer.
You'll have to do an iponfig or ipconfig/all to obtain the IP Address of the other computer that you're trying to access.

I have a brand new LG GH22NS40 DVD-ROM, but it won't read or write anything. I tried to burn with 3 different softwares (Nero, ImgBurn, Ashampoo) and still nothing. I have the latest firmaware ( the second for this dvd-rom ) and there's no difference. I use Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bits.

How i made it ?

I just reinstalled the driver and it worked just fine.

Can you go to device manager (Computer>System Properties>device Manager (top left)

Then go to your dvd drive>right Click>properties
Does it say it is working ok?

It more than likely is a hardware fault.

With a USB-attached adapter, for 2.5-, 3.5-, and 5.25-sized drives, can I write, in addition to read? In other words, are they I/O? Are any adapters read-only?

Thanks!
 

A:Ext HD read and write?

I see no reason why you will not be able to Read/Write Copy...or whatever you want to do

Assuming this is PC and not Mac/PC

Yes there are some adaptors that have Read-only (Write-protect) Function

I had 2 x 256mb ram cards plus 2 x 64mb cards installed and under "My Computer" properties it only said I had 496Mb of ram. I replace the 64mb cards with 2 new 256bm cards in slots 1 and 2 and moved the ollder 256mb cards to slots 3 and 4. The properties still only show that I have 496 mb of ram. Is this a hardware problem or a software problem and what do I do next. When starting the computere up, I get a message that says there is a read/write error at a certain location but then it continues to boot up. It is running slower now but still running. Dell dimention 8100 running XP. Thanks

I have Roxio Direct CD 5 and Easy CD Creator on my machine...TEAC CD-W554E CD Rom...

Having been given a rather large box of CD-RW 700MB discs it would be nice to be able to use them--ONLY-- they are not recognized by the software I have...I usually use 1 x 4 compatible...these discs are 8 x 12 high speed...

If I keep these discs, would I be able to use them when I get around to buying Nero...'been getting around to it for months now'...just hate spending money until I have to....only I understand Nero is a far superior software, so I will eventually shell out for it...

Can Nero use these discs or does it depend on the drive I have...

Cheers guys...

My computer has suddenly and without warning become unable to read or write a DVD on either the built-in player or an external one, both of which behave identically. When I try to open a DVD which plays perfectly on my laptop, I get a screen showing files ready to be written to disc with a file named "desktop.ini" on it. When I try to write to a DVD I get a message that "Windows was unable to complete the format". As I said, I get the same results on both DVD players which pretty well rules out a hardware problem. I would do a system restore, but in a classical catch 22, windows refuses to open system restore even when the computer is booted in safe mode. No improvement after running the SFC/Scannow command or scanning with Regcure Pro. Deep scans of my computer with both Avast and Malwarebytes have failed to find any virus. Hoping to avoid a full reinstall of Windows, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have an Emachine with an NEC 2500A DVD+-RW (at least Nero 6 said it was an NEC2500A) drive running windows XP. Up until recently I could read and write DVD-R disks. Something has happened, DVD-r's are not recognized by the drive anymore. I did have Video Studio 7 SE on the computer for a while as well as Nero 6. They both worked for a while before the DVD recorder had problems. I've removed both and uninstalled and re-installed the recorder. Still does not work. Only other thing I think I did was an automated Windows Update. Does anyone have any ideas?
 

A:Can't read or write DVD-r, dvd+rw's and cdr's work!

try system restore: set to a date when your dvd-r's worked.

I use a MacBook Pro 17" with Dual Boot (Boot Camp) XP Pro and OSX

I want to be able to use the same external drive for both systems. Maxstor 1 Terabyte Firewire 800 drive.

I note that FAT32 can be used up to 2 Terabyte, so I made 2 partitions, one 120Gb for pure Mac use in HFS+, and the balance of about 850Gb in FAT32 for either. I used a Linux LiveCD (Ubuntu 7) and Gnome Partition Editor to do the partitioning. Linux seems to see the partitions OK. However WXP sees the partition as "Unknown" and offers to format it in NTFS.

I know WXP can read/write FAT32 bigger than 32Gb, as I am using an external 2.5" 120Gb drive on WXP formatted as per above method, purely in FAT32, with no read or write problems.

To save me performing multiple re-partitioning and re-booting as trial and error, I wonder if anyone can inform me of the largest FAT32 partition that Windows XP Pro can read/write to before if throws a fit.

First, my apologies if this has been addressed before. Was not able to find it using search.

I have an HP Pavilion, a410n desktop which I use as a second computer. It has a DVD-Rom and a CD-RW drive. I also have an external LG Super Multi DVD Rewriter attached via USB.

All 3 drives can read recorded disks and appear to function okay. However neither the internal CD-RW nor the external DVD drives will write CD's or DVD's. Neither appear to recognize blank disks.

When I use XYExplorer to see the files is has a red circle (like the no smoking circle) on the drive letters. When I left click the drive letters I get a message "Currently not available" with the drive letter.

Device status says both are working properly.
Devive Manager says all are working properly.

Help!

Hello all computer geeks out there who can solve this problem,

I've got a Sony 52X CD-RW drive. It used to work fine until recently, and I could read and burn CDs very well. But recently, I've noticed that I can read CDs but when I try to burn one, I get an error message that there is no writable disc in the drive. I've tried changing the CD and the manufacturer but it hasn't worked. In its drive properties I've checked that the driver is properly installed.
Sometimes I can burn CDs, but that is only if I use my Nero (version 6.
something), not the built-in Roxio one.
One thing. I used Nero InfoTool to collect information. It told me that 'System ASPI is not installed' and 'Nero ASPI is installed and working properly'.
Happy figuring!
 

A:To read but not to write, that is the question.

try using cdburnerpro and see if you are getting the same problem.

I upgraded an HP Pavillion Desktop from winME to XP Home. Everything was working fine. Few days ago, the "HP CD-Writer DVD Combo" simply stopped 'seeing' CD's. Oddly enough, it reads DVD's. I've inserted manufactured music CD's, blank cd's, cdrw's, and cd's with lots of different data--none of it is detected.

I'm wondering if perhaps this is being caused by p2p software (hijacking, etc?) or perhaps of another software installation (e.g. LitexMedia WMA Converter). Those are the only pertinent differences i can find between this computer and my other identical HP Pav computer which I also upgrated from ME to XP, and so far everything is fine.

I've tried updating the driver, but it says i've already got the latest version. From another posting i read, i thought it might be the laser, but they why would it be able to read DVDs?

I'm completely stuck. I have no clue what the problem could be. Ideas?

Thank you in advance--soooooooo much!
