Windows 8 uses SMB version 3, most devices are built on SMB version 1 and 2. Version 3 is supposed to be backwards compatible, however most devices running versions 1 and 2 don’t have that functionality enabled, or do not understand the newer protocol entirely.
Two possible solutions.
Update your windows 8 install… in some cases this fixes the issue
Disable the newer SMB protocol…
Start a command prompt as an Administrator
From the command prompt, type:
sc config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
sc config mrxsmb20 start= disabled
Reboot and you’re good to go!
