Windows 7: Trying to stream media over my network..... Can't access Workgroup

No, never created a password. Not sure but the JJ seems to be what I called my wmp12 library which shouldn't have anything to do w/ this. All I want/need is full access to ALL my files, folders. At this point I can't add or delete from the "network tree" Jim's PC. I am at a loss. Thank you

Hi 64met

Have you set the sharing permissions within the folder that you are sharing?
  • Right click on the folder you want to share;
  • Select Share With/Advanced Sharing;
  • Click on Permissions;
  • Select Everyone and make sure that Full Control is ticked.
Let us know if that works.

Regards

Hi UKMedia,

Under everyone I have full control ticked and I also have Change and Read ticked. What else I see but have not tried is under everyone it gives me an option to ADD. I check this and am given another tree which reads: Select Users or Groups; from this location. Here I see Jim's PC and enter object names to select. I haven't tried anything here as of yet. Anyway, Thank you for your help on this!! Up until a few days ago I never had a problem...... Let me know if there is something else I should try.
