I have been reading threads on this forum but couldn't find answers I needed. Guess I am too technically challenged.
1) I wanted to disable the auto-scanning on the Touch. Following a thread on this forum, I installed Putty (actually extraputty) on my Windows XP. I input the IP of my Touch (192.168.10.105), selected "ssh", and pressed "enter", a window came out with a green cursor at the upper left corner - I suppose if I type anything now, it will appear there. I tried typing the password and pressed "enter" but nothing happened in the window. After a few seconds, a message popped out "fatal error, access time out". If I don't type anything, the error message also pops out after a few seconds. I consulted the manual of Putty but it didn't have this situation.
2) The Touch says it is successfully connected to my home network wirelessly. But I can't find the icon in XP as "my workplace". It appeared there once - I tried to click and open it but a message popped out, saying I didn't have permission to access and needed to consult the administrator of the server. I consulted myself - the admin of the Touch but of course no good news. Windows XP on my computer didn't ask the password of the Touch or anything when I clicked the icon. Now I can't see it in "my workplaces" even after restart my computer and the Touch. Plus, I never successfully opened the Touch IP in a web browser - IE or Firefox. I just try to transfer music files wirelessly so I don't have to unplug the hard drive everyday. Unfortunately I can't make it happen without more basic computer knowledge.
3) If I disabled the Touch Server but didn't physically remove it (unplugging the USB) then the Touch would tell me something like "nothing was attached - but it couldn't connect the USB devices, try again!" when I tried to restart the Touch Server. I have to unplug the hard drive and replug it to get the Touch recognize it. Is that the case or I did anything wrong again?
