Accessing iDisk from Windows 7

Consumed at least half an hour trying to get integrated idisk access on my Windows 7 64-bit machine.

Finally got it working by following the advice here: http://r0b0tz.com/?p=30

Repost for ease of reference:

1) Open “Computer”

2) Click on “Map Network Drive” at the top (under the path/location area)

3) Select the drive letter you want it to be connected under.

4) In the folder name entry area you want to enter:

http://idisk.me.com/%5Busername%5D

IE: http://idisk.me.com/law1983

4) Enable “Connect using different credentials”

5) Click ‘OK’

6) Enter your me username and password, enable saving of the information then proceed.

This seems pretty obvious and I’m convinced I tried it a few times using different access routes (e.g. explorer window, network sharing centre… ) with no success before finding this website and giving it one last try. It was a complete surprise when it finally accepted my credentials with no fuss. So be warned, it may not work for you first time.

Update!

There is a MobileMe Control Panel for windows. See here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL769
