Windows 7: cannot copy files over home network! PLEASE HELP :(

cannot copy files over home network! PLEASE HELP :(

Lets call upstairs computer "A" (has windows 7 X64), Downstairs computer will be "B"- has windows xp.
When I try to copy or move video files (350 MB and above) from"A" to "B", operation starts but hangs after a while and then I get this error:
"there is a problem accessing [path of "B" destination directory]. make sure you are connected to the network and try again."
This happens when I try to copy files to ANY of my drives on "B" (internal or external). BUT it does not happen when copying small files.
There is enough empty space on destination drive.
I'm using cable lan (not wireless), and have tplink router (TL-WR64XG).
I also tried to reset router settings to factory settings with no luck.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

I suspect you are using Homegroup. Homegroup has conectivity problems on some networks (especially mixed OS networks).

You can easily verify if that is the problem be creating a new network connection using workgroup instead. If the problem disappears you can stop IPv6 and kill off the homegroup.


Let us know if you need help

I am not using homegroup.
the status of the homegroup is "ready to create"

Now, I don't know too much about networks and stuff, but U said something about IPv6? I don't think I'm using that. In local area connection status, it says: "IPv6 connectivity: No network access". Is this OK?

Never mind, I think the problem is solved!
All I had to do was update my Realtek network adapter driver on "B" (win xp).
The reason I thought the drivers were up to date is because no necessary update showed up on windows update (not even in the optional updates!).
So I had to find this update myself.
If problem persists, I'll be back. Until then, thank U all anyways.

Hi bizoot


Not much of a network person, but here are a couple of tutorials you could try:

XP Computers in the Windows 7 Network Map

File Sharing - Between XP and W7 (and vice versa)

InformIT

Hope this helps in some way

Problem solved for me. On Windows 7 PC I could see an old shared folder "bolox" from XP PC. On XP PC it didn't exist anymore. It was deleted. What I have done was created new folder named "bolox", XP asked me if I wanted to replace old "bolox" with new "bolox". I replaced it. Then stadrard precedure on XP: share "bolox" so I could acces it on Windows 7 PC then unshare "bolox". After that on my Windows 7 PC "bolox" disappeared and copying big files was OK again. I think Windows 7 PC was looking for not existing folder on my XP PC and that was the reason for hunging all copying from Windows 7 PC to XP PC. I add only that I always could copy from Windows 7 PC to XP PC doing it from my XP PC. I could NOT copy from Windows 7 PC to XP PC doing it from Windows 7 PC. I hope it's clear.
