  • Hi,


    You may read the following KB:


    You cannot access a shared folder that is located on a Windows 2000 or Windows 98-based computer from a Windows 7-based computer



    BTW, as the issue is more related to Windows 7, please post in Windows 7 forums for a better assistance.


    Best Regards
