Hi,

I'm sorry if this has been posted before. I did have a look but couldnt really find another situation like mine.

I've got Vista on my main PC and XP Media Centre 2005 on my laptop. Both are connected to my router, I can view the internet on both. They both share the same workgroup.

My problem is that On the vista pc I can see and access the shared folders fine but on the xp pc I can see the vista shared files but cannot access them.
I dont' use a 3rd party firewall and windows firewall is currently switched off. I've turned on filesharing, printer sharing, public folder sharing and media sharing password protection is off but I still cannot access the vista files on my xp laptop.

Can anyone help me with this?

Kind Regards,

Rachel:confused:
