Accessing PC

Hi all, I have a question, i am able to create an activesync with my pc with bluetooth. I was wondering how i can access my hardrive on my pc. i have set it as being shared and my networked PC can access it, i was wondering how i would go about accessing it with my IPAQ, its a 5545 if that helps. Cheers in advance

OK If you have set the appropriate sharing you can do the following: From File Explorer, you will see three icons at the bottom-MY DEVICE – STORAGE CARD – NETWORK SHARE Click on NETWORK SHARE and you will see an OPEN dialog box The path will start with \\ enter the name of the computer you are accessing followed by the directory you want to access. For example: \\ibm200gig\jack

If you have set your permissions correctly, it should work for you.

Just a thought mattygg

When I first did this, I had some difficulty and just couldn’t figure it out. Eventually I got RESCO EXPLORER and was able to easily see the computer I wanted to access because it clearly showed MY NETWORK. RESCO is a great program!
