Accessing FREEnas drive from Windows 7

I have been using freeNAS for my home server for over a year, accessing from Windows XP and Mac with no problems. Now I have a Windows 7 runing 64 bit and I can't see it. I can see my UPnP Media server and my XP computers on the network, but I can't see my CIF/SMB Shares. Any ideas of what I can try?

    Are you sure they all share the same workgroup (WORKGROUP is the default)?

    Have you tried accessing a share using the IP address like this \\ip_address\share_name

    That should work
  3. That worked. Typing in the full path. For some reason it just doesn't appear in Explorer like the other shares. Thanks
