how to share files from vista to win 7

i have all my music files on my desktop using vista....i cannot seem to access these files on my win 7 laptop. they can be accessed via windows media player on the laptop, but thats it. I was attempting to add the music folder to my itunes on my laptop. i have made the music folder public. It can be seen on my xbox as well as my ps3

the network sees the laptop and destop, but when i try to access them they both ask for a user name and password. I have not set any passwords for either. please advise. Thanks.

Its advisable to have a password on all your equipment, then your problem should be fixed.
