Make SMB shares appear in Devices section of Finder sidebar
Authored by: irc on Jul 04, '09 08:46:54AM

Like the OP: I've never been able to keep dragged Sharepoint shares in my Devices section on the sidebar between reboots -- despite the NAS being always on and available. They always disappear. This is with my ReadyNAS. I've added the ReadyNAS' IP to my WINS list. Let see if it sticks around in the Devices section.

The current ReadyNas firmware has an option to become a WINS Server.

Since this box is always on, I enabled the WINS server, and added the IP of the ReadyNas to my Mac's newtwork configuration (at the place described in the original post). I also added this IP to my PC's network configuration under WINS servers.

Now both the PC and the ReadyNas show up automatically in the sidebar.
