Share my Win7 HDD with WinXP and Win7

Hello People!

We`ve got a Windows 7 Ultimate Media PC connected to the TV in the livingroom, and connected to the router and internet. It has two Harddrives:
1 x 360GB - OSDisk
1 x 2000GB - MediaDisk

We want to share the 2TB Media Disk with our other computers:
1 x WinXP Pro SP3
1 x Windows 7 Ultimate

But i cant get it to work. The only thing i succeeded was getting into my windows 7 desktop with the media pc, but it has to be the other way around.

Here is a picture discribing things more clearly: CLICK!

Cant i just Disable all security shit on the Media PC so the other PC`s wont get an error message, that they dont have the privilage to connect to the Media HDD?

Damn its hard to discribe my problem but to make it short:

I want to SHARE one HARDDRIVE on a WINDOWS 7 computer with two other computers: one WINDOWS XP computer and one WINDOWS 7 computer.

Thanks for all help i can get!

I will bet you are running "homegroup" for networking. Homegroup uses IPv6 and has connectivity issues on some systems.

To verify if that is the problem you can simply set up a new network connection using "workgroup" instead. It uses IPv4 and seems to be more reliable
