I know this problem has been posted before, but no-one has ever really provided a solution to it. I was reading that the USB port on the HomeHub2 supports USB Hard drives, so I got one and plugged it in.
Now from what I've been reading, it seems that there are two types of HH2 out there (and I'm not referring to Type A & Type B as this issue seems to have affected people with both), essentially there are those that instantly work and those that don't. I'm not interested in the the former as I have one of the latter.
So, my question is, has anyone managed to map a network drive on their PC to the USB hard drive connected to their HH2 when it hasn't just magically worked straight away and how, when it isn't showing on the network?
In Windows Explorer on both my Vista & XP PC's the home hub shows up as this:
I, too, have the same problem but can't see a clear cut resolution.
I have a BT Infinity Home Hub 2.0, I have connected my Seagate HDD to the usb socket. It has been formatted to FAT32. When I try to Map it to my network with the address 192.168.1.253/bt_7g, I can hear the HDD working but get a message to say the following
'Your computer appears to be correctly configured but the device (HDD) or resource (192.168.1.253) is not responding'
I feel I'm almost there but can't quite access it.
Your help is very much appreciated.
