Windows 7: Windows 7/XP streaming crashes

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Windows 7/XP streaming crashes

I decided to give Win 7 a shot so I set up a dual boot with 7 Professional 64bit on a new partition and my old XP SP3 on another. This is my media computer with all my movies and TV shows that my 4 other XP computers pull from for viewing.

I set up a workgroup, see it fine from the XP computers and can start watching shows on the xp machines but after 8-15 minutes the stream crashes. I boot back into XP on the media computer and stream is fine forever. I"m using Nero 8 for the viewing on the xp computers. Have searched the internet with no solution.

Any ideas?

Thought maybe Nero was the problem. Upgraded to Nero 10, same thing happened but in 3 minutes as opposed to 8-15. Bummer. Does this mean I have to put win 7 on all my machines? Think maybe I'll stick to xp if that's the case

Not exactly... May we have the make a model of your Router?

sometimes older routers without a firmware up grade won't work correctly with 7.. this is just one possibility.

Windows 7 is an amazing OS; don't shy away from it just yet.
