AutoCAD 2009 /Windows 7 - Block Writing and Mapping to Folders Error

582 Views, 2 Replies

I have AutoCAD 2009 running on Windows 7.

 

When I would like to write a new block (WBLOCK), I try to select the location where to wrtire the block on my network drive, and it will not read the sub-folders.  I can get the ROOT, in this case, W: drive and 1 level down, but nothing beyond that.

 

Has anyone found this, or similar, issue?  Any fixes for this?

 

Thank you.

Your Windows login does not allow read-write-rename-delete access perhaps?

I can access those folders in a regular window.

 

I can also choose the needed folder when Inserting a Block.  There is no issue there.

 

It's just writing blocks and choosing the folder.  It's strange.
