sharing an external drive..

pitbull1
Once again I am back searching for your group's wisdom. To update, I had posted in the past about going with an external drive for backup and file sharing. Well I finally got an WD external USB drive and now have it connected to my main computer(it works fine there), but I am having difficulty setting it up to share with my laptop. I set the WD drive to be shared on the main PC, and if I go to My Network Places on the laptop, I can see the drive, along with the other folders I have shared amongst the two computers. If I double click any of the folders, I can access the files within them; but when I double click the drive I come up with the dialog box....
(name of drive) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission.
Not enough server storage is available to process this command.

Please help. Can somebody walk me through setting this drive properly to share with both computers?
Thank You,
Mark
