I use my imac as a file serve to access external drives with media. I started having issues accessing from my MacBook Pro with Monterey. Found a fix something with activating SMB2 because Apple had switched to SMB3. With the arrival of Ventura back to square one, nothing worked and with each update no fix in sight.Then i found a fix that works for me. Some where on the web (sorry can’t find the source any more to give credit)
was to check if you drive icons have custom icons (like to do that so that you know which drive you ejected and don’t remove the wrong one). So one burnt offering had to be made for a functioning SMB. Removed and saved the custom icons for a later day. Restarted the iMac. Since then file sharing works again. Open “cmd I” on the drive click on the top icon and “cmd X” you should get a generic drive icon. Worked for me but haven’t had the opportunity to test it in other setups.
Things don't always turn out as expected. The teardrop phone from a few years ago never materialized. ...
I remember a mac world where Nvidia jumped the gun about there great graphic cards that would be the next mac. It ended with Nvidia no longer showing up in a mac officially. Apple has a we will never forget attitude. Apple almost never licenses software from a company that took them to court. It’s often petty on apples part they should be bigger than that but they seldom are. Epic killed it’s golden goose. They might as well move on.
