I connect USB drives (Usb keys, mp3 players, other types of external Usb drives) to my computer. Then I share them so that I can access them from other computers of my LAN.
When the USB drive is a fAT 32 formatted drive, I have no problem accessing it from other computers. But when it's an NTFS formatted drive, eventhoug I was able to enable sharing on it, I can see it from other computers, but I get "permission denied" error when I double click on the drive from within the windows explorer.
In the sharing options of the NTFS formatted USB drive, I made sure that all permissions are not restricted (Full Control Permissions
to everyone).
PS: I have no problem sharing local NTFS drives (drives that are on the IDE controllers) on the Network. How come that's not working with the external USB drives formatted as NTFS?
All the computers of my LAN are windows XP Pro computers.

Thanks for helping
