File sharing with multiple OS.

I have a 3 computer setup. First computer is windows 7 Pro 64 bit and is wire connected to the router. The second computer is XP Pro 32 bit and is also wire connected to the router. The third computer is a laptop XP Home 32bit and is wireless connected to the router. All 3 computers see each other. Computers 1 and 3 can exchange files no problem. Computer 2 can read files on computer 1 and 3. Neither computer 1 or 3 can read any file from computer 2. I turned windows firewall off for the LAN connection and it made no difference. The file I try to read verify that they are set to sharing. I am stumped. I could really use some help with this.

Try turning off simple file sharing on the XP pro machine. That setting tends to cause problems on XP pro machines. :)
