Windows 7: sharing win7 with xp

sharing win7 with xp

Hi,

Here is the situation, I have 3 machines in the house

1 x win 7 ultimate x86 desktops both with wired connection to router
1 x win xp sp3 laptop using wireless to connect to networked & internet
1 x mac mini wired connection to router

My problem is:
On the win 7 machine which has a 3 partitions (2 HDD) with large storage capacity I can see and access all the machines on the network from this machine.

Whilst on the XP laptop and the Mac I can see the Win 7 machine but I can not access the folders i want.

On one of the partitions I can open the folders but no matter what I try by changing sharing on the other partitions I can not open the folders.

I have all the drives shared out, the users on all the machines have the same user name, there are no passwords.

Hope you can help me find the tick box I am missing!

Thanks

I have tried the above and still no joy, infact the status is worse as now after chacking all the settings I can not access the Xp machine from the win 7 machine!

Has anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

I should have said even with this change I can still open the same folder on the Windows 7 machine.

If anyone is interested I fixed the problem by installing Network magic
