ok i have xp on a wireless system and i have my computer with an extra hdd. i want to share this hdd on the entire network. whenever i enable sharing for that drive, and try to access it through My Network places on another computer, it gives me an error saying The network path was not found. what do i do. how do i get every computer on the network to see this drive and be able to use it by adding files to it and such?

Well first, Windows takes time to discover objects on a network.
Are both computers on the same workgroup and subnet?
Are they both running Windows XP?

Does the following work?

Start--> Run--> type: "//<computer name>/folder"
(where "computer name" is the unique name of your computer with the shared drive.)
