Hello,

Create an identical User Name and Passwords on both computers (Windows 7 and XP), then try accessing each shared folder or drive.

the problem is, you can access to a computer just when it is protected in the network with a user/pass.
try to make one in the target computer and in this box use its user/pass

If you want to share folders between XP and 7 you should be using the Public folders.

You don't need to mess with the NTFS permission settings or passwords at all this way so using the Public folders is a much easier and secure method for sharing.

Sharing the main Public folder also share's it's subfolders.

Just go into the Public Folder at C: Users>Public> Sharing tab and set to share with Everyone read/write, apply setting hit OK.

This will instantly share that folder with everyone in the workgroup and the Homegroup if you have one set up.
