Support Article: Map network drive under Windows XP

   This is assuming that the server drive or selected folder is shared and able to be accessed through the

 network. If not share the "T" folder on the server, with full access prior to proceeding.  On Xp machines," share files with another computer" needs to be enabled.  Also some Virus detection programs block the server - Workstation communications, if communication issues exist try disabling the Virus detection program, then use some work around.

To map a network drive on your Windows XP or XP Professional machine click “START” then look to the top left and click on  “MY NETWORK PLACES”.  

You should now be looking at a window similar to this: .


If you have “ENTIRE NETWORK” visible, and don’t see a workgroup, click on “ENTIRE NETWORK”. When you see a workgroup, in this example it is the “Aisys” icon, double click on the workgroup.


You should now be looking at a window similar to this: 

This is a “view” of all the computers connected to the network. Locate your server, in this example it is called “Main”. Right click the selected server and choose “Map Network Drive”.


You will now see this window pop up:

You now choose a network drive letter. Your network drive letter should be one you can easily remember. You will need to choose the path from the dropdown list if it is not already selected.   Usually this is something like \\server\t.   Next, be sure to check the reconnect at logon box and then click OK.

After this is completed, the AJA DMS software needs to be made aware of the Network Drive letter to use to access the data over the network.. This is done by starting the AJA DMS program, entering the Utility Menu, choosing selection #1 (Access System file), then arrowing down about 8 or so lines and inserting the Drive letter assigned above as data location #1 and data location #2
