connect the phone to external hard drive wireless

I have a laptop with Vista and a pc with Windows 7.  We have an external hard drive connected to the pc.  I would like to move my music files from my laptop to the external hard drive and be able to communicate with them wireless.  What should I do to be able to do this? There is a wireless router in the House.



Wire or wireless does not matter for this purpose.

The drive must be set as a shared device, and then the other computers that are on the same network (wire or wireless) can access.

Here's how.

Win7 when configured on the peer-to-peer network has three types of configurations of sharing.

Group residential network = only works between Win 7 computers. This type of configuration, it is very easy to entry level users to start sharing network.

Working network = fundamentally similar to previous methods of sharing that allow you to control what, how and to whom the records would be shared with.

Public share
= network Public (as Internet Café) in order to reduce security risks.

For the best newspaper of the results of each computer screen system and together all computers on a network of the same name, while each computer has its own unique name.


Make sure that the software firewall on each computer allows free local traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall on, Vista/XP Firewall Native should be disabled, and the active firewall has adjusted to your network numbers IP on what is sometimes called the Zone of confidence (see part 3 firewall instructions

General example,
Please note that some 3rd party software firewall continue to block the same aspects it traffic Local, they are turned Off (disabled). If possible, configure the firewall correctly or completely uninstall to allow a clean flow of local network traffic. If the 3rd party software is uninstalled, or disables, make sure Windows native firewall is active .


Win 7 networking with other version of Windows as a work network.

In the center of the network, by clicking on the type of network opens the window to the right.

Choose your network type. Note the check box at the bottom and check/uncheck depending on your needs.


Sharing Configurations.

Win 7 -

Win 7 network sharing folder specific work -

Vista file and printer sharing -

When you have finished the configuration of the system, it is recommended to restart everything the router and all computers involved.


If you have authorization and security problems, check the followingsettings.

Point to a folder that wants to share do right click and choose Properties.

In the properties

Click on the Security tab shown in the bellows of the photo on the right) and verify that users and their permissions (see photo below Centre and left) are configured correctly. Then do the same for the authorization tab.

This screen shot is to Win 7, Vista menus are similar.


The Security Panel and the authorization Panel, you need to highlight each user/group and consider that the authorization controls are verified correctly.

When everything is OK, restart the network (router and computer).

* Note . The groups and users listed in the screen-shoot are just an example. Your list will focus on how your system is configured.

* Note . There must be specific users. All means all users who already have an account now as users. This does not meaneveryone who feel they would like to connect.


* Note. Some of the processes described above are made sake not for Windows, but to compensate for different routers and how their firmware works and stores information about computers that are networked.

  • Cannot connect remotely to an external hard drive on iMac

    I have trouble connecting to remote a Macbook (10.10.5) of an external HARD drive mounted which is connected to an iMac (Mac OS X 10.10.5.) The iMac is connected to the internet via an airport express base station 7.6.4.

    I created an account of sharing only to connect to this drive and I've had no success connecting to it outside the local network of this external hard drive.

    Because the Terminal airport express base station is involved, y at - it sort of port forwarding for connect to this hard drive mounting?

    I've only tried to plug the hard disk via finder > go > connect to server > name.local/locationOfExternalHarddrive of the computer and have had no success so I think the explicit base station is the question?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    I've only tried to plug the hard disk via finder > go > connect to server > computer name.local/locationOfExternalHarddrive

    This is assuming you have CCMM configuration and working properly... without it, Wan, there is no way that the computer can find computername.local

    You need the public IP address of the router... and there may be only a single router. Normally, it is not possible to use IP because it is dynamic, with a home ISP accounts then you must configure the global DNS name or a dynamic DNS account.

    Please read Tesserax doco on remote... the best method is Apple CCMM.

    Airport drive - remote (3 methods)

    A simpler method in my humble OPINION is teamviewer... same as Apple CCMM without as many restrictions.

    Any method of remote access requires a careful configuration of the home network. And the Mac must be able to wake on lan... (apple have their own fancy name for it).

  • Change the password on external hard drive

    Hi all

    on my iMac 21.5 ", I recently updated my Mac HD internal to El Capitan 10.11.  There are now several major programs (for example MPEG Streamclip and Photoshop elements 11) which worked fine under Yosemite, but are not compatible with El Capitan.

    On an external hard drive, I installed Yosemite 10.10.2 in late 2014 when it was the last version of OS X.  Only, I installed a system on the usual external drive boot on the internal HD failure.  All of these programs (also installed on the external hard drive) work very well in Yosemite.

    When I start on the hard disc to access these programs, I had problems when I need to make changes for which the system requires a user and a password.  I don't remember what they were.  Is it possible to change the password (given that I can identify the user name in the "Users" folder), please?

    Best regards, paulranger1.

    Please open the Startup disk preferences window and select the volume on the external hard disk. You must change this selection on the internal drive after the reset of the password.

    Start in recovery mode. When OS X Utilities window, select

    Utilities ▹ Terminal

    in the menu bar at the top of the screen, not one of the items in the OS X Utilities window.

    In the window that opens, type this:


    Press the tab key. The partial order you entered will automatically end this:


    Press return. Opens a window to reset the password. Close the Terminal window to get him out of the way.

    Select the boot volume ("Macintosh HD", unless you have given it a different name) if not already selected. You won't be able to do this if FileVault is turned on.

    Select your username in the menu option allows you to select the account if not already selected.

    Follow the prompts to reset the password. It is safer to choose a password that includes only the characters a - z, A - Z and 0-9.


    ▹ Restart 

    in the menu bar.

    You should now be able to login with the new password, but will reset the keychain (empty). If you have forgotten the password for the keychain (which is normally the same as the password for the connection), there is no way to recover it.

  • front usb ports are unable to detect the large capacity external hard drive (250 GB)

    I have 250 GB external hard drive, whenever I connect to my front usb ports it detected, but pen drives, are to detect flash drives, one of my friends said that you need to update my bios & I here is the motherboard.

    motherboard: Mercury 945gcm

    It is possible that the USB 1.1 and not 2.0 ports that can explain the problem.  In addition, sometimes USB ports out enough power to run an external device that is not powered separatelly.  I don't know if updating the BIOS will help, but if there is an update available for your system (and it MUST be for your system - big bad can occur if you install the wrong BIOS so get with the computer manufacturer, and speak to a representative to confirm that they are appropriate for your system AND your version of Vista) then by all means install it and see if that solves the problem.  You can also get the updated drivers for the motherboard manufacturer, at the same time and see if that helps as well.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Windows 7 asks Me to format the Seagate FreeAgent external hard drive I've used for more than a month

    I used Seagate FreeAgent as my external hard drive for more than a month now, but recently I am unable to access Windows 7 asks me to format it to use it. Somehow I can format the HDD without losing my data?  Or does perform a work around?

    Hi NuVille,

    Before perform us any of the steps, first of all I suggest you to create a backup of the data stored in your external hard drive on another computer.

    To save the data, you can connect your external hard drive on another computer and copy all the files and folders on the other computer. Later, you can connect the external drive to the Windows 7 computer and try to run the disk error checking and check if that helps you solve the problem.

    Access the link below and follow the steps to check the drive for errors and fix it.

    After completing the disc you error checking, try to check if you can access the drive.

    If the steps above do not I suggest you try to format the hard drive. Access the link below and follow the steps to format the hard drive.

    Note: there is no way to format without losing any data on the disk. Formatting the drive will erase all data.  This is why you must back up the data before formatting the hard drive.

    I hope this helps. Let us know the results.

    Thank you and best regards,

  • Windows 7 does not recognize the new WD external hard drive added to the usb port

    Recently, I tried to add my third USB WD hard drive to my computer.  It's a My Book Essential.  The meter turns and the virtual cd drive is listed in WD, but the hard drive itself does not appear on the list of devices with a drive letter.  My my first two books are readers: J:, and L: I have no "new device found" message   I search for new devices and it the PC do not find anything.  If I click on the virtual CD drive (M :) it askes if I want the computer to allow WD to make changes...) I say Yes and the screen flashes and nothing happens.
    The drive be defective?  Any other ideas?


    Have you tried to connect the external hard drive on another USB port?

  • Run the virtual machine on the SSD or external HARD drive

    Hi all

    For school I need a large number of virtual machines. In total, I have about 140 GB of VM. And with a total of 250 GB of SSD on my macbook pro, which is for many.

    If I want to move my VM on an external hard drive.

    My question is what is the best type of external hard drive that I can get.

    It's a normal with a thunderbolt connection HARD drive or an external hard drive SSD with USB 3.0 connection.

    Who is the fastest, and I see a lot of delay compared to my normal internal drive of the SSD.

    I don't want a disc HARD normal 3.0, it may slow down the VM to a large part.


    If you ask a normal hard drive vs SSD then the SSD will win anytime, regardless of the USB3 or love at first sight.

    An SSD using thunderbolt would be preferable, but I don't know if they are easy to find.

    The advantage of having a via USB3 SSD, is that the disc is easy to use also other non-apple machines.

    An SSD in USB3 should work fine however.

    Side note:

    As you have an external connection there is a risk of the drive is disconnected/offline when you use the virtual machine. This can cause whatever it is the corruption of data to have a virtual machine that is completely missing. So if this is going to be your Setup program then make sure to make regular backups of these virtual machines to another disk.


  • Save the playlist on external hard drive.

    I would like to be able to export a playlist on an external hard drive, so that all the mp3s in this playlist are grouped in the same order on the hard disk as in the playlist.

    Hello Nomad vagabond,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    If I understand your message that you want to export a playlist on an external hard drive and want to keep all the songs in the same order that they were when they were in the iTunes library. I have stopped at my music as well.

    This article contains information on the iTunes library:

    On the iTunes library files

    The iTunes Library.itl file is a database of songs in your library and playlists that you created.

    Thus, songs and playlists will be recorded how you created and you can move them to the external hard drive by following these steps:

    Manage and backup your iTunes library

    Best regards.

  • How to transfer iTunes with comments and followed by names, but keep the files of the song on external hard drive?

    I have all of my music stored on an external hard drive. On my old iMac, I have iTunes with all the songs on this hard drive organized or recognized as I like, with comments and play lists and track/song names and album names. How can I transfer iTunes as it is to the old iMac to the new MacMini while leaving the actual files of the song (> 2.5 to) on the external hard drive? In short, I want the old iTunes on my new computer, but the files of the song in the current HD thank you so much.

    (2.66 GHz, 4 GB RAM 20 "iMac; 2014 new Mac Mini)

    Hmmm...   Never tried, but I "think" it should work.   The reader will need to named exactly something on the new computer, as it was on the old.

    1. on the old computer, go to {user folder} / music/iTunes and move the files on the external hard drive.

    2. on the new computer in iTunes, go to Preferences > advanced and not select "copy of the file to the iTunes Media folder.

    3. always in this same window under "iTunes Media folder location", click on change.   Now select the location on the external hard drive, you have moved the files too.
