Solve It! File Transfer Problems

This section offers solutions to the more common problems you may encounter when trying to transfer files from one Mac to another. Most of the advice here applies to all connections of this sort, not just those involving PowerBooks.

Can't Get File Sharing to Work

Symptoms:
  • When trying to turn on file sharing, you get a message that says "File sharing could not be enabled" or the file sharing startup simply never finishes.

  • The file sharing option does not appear in the File Sharing control panel window.

  • When trying to connect to another Macintosh, you get a message that says the shared disk could not be opened because it "could not be found on the network."

  • When trying to connect to another Macintosh, you get a message that says it can't be opened because you do not have enough "access privileges."

  • You cannot enable file sharing or connect to a shared disk for any other reason.

  • While sharing information across disks, problems occur, such as system freezes or crashes.
