    Im having a problem sharing a folder from parallels to a XP VM (Service pack 2). I share the folder and give it a label of "Mac Drive".

    I then open Parallel shared folders in the XP virtual machine... it lists my "Mac Drive" but when I double click on it I get

    \\.PSF\Mac Drive is not accessible (then the usual message about contaction the administrator) and it finishes with the

    "The filename, directory name, or voluma label syntax is incorrect"

    Am I missing something obvious?

    Thanks

    Dom.

    Did you install this in the Parallels console under shared folders?

    | added it under "Edit Virtual Machine"/Shared Folders.

    Is this an issue?

    Okay sorted it... but not sure if its the right solution... I've started using the ip adress of the host from the File Explorer/Map Network drive and this appears to solve the issue.. not sure if this is the issue | didn't approach the problem in a scientific fashion... I just changed a whole lot of things... and got it to work
