Other drives should have different "sharename"s, which you can see in
the "Sharing" tab of their properties.

So, for example, if your D drive is shared as "ddrive" with the same
security mode and users as "sharename" above, you would use:

  smbclient //machinename/ddrive -U smbclient

If you don't know what this drive is shared as or what its security
mode is, right-click on it and look at the "Sharing" tab.

Good luck,
