Sharing files between Win7 and Ubuntu laptop

Hey, I'm trying to transfer about 8 gigs of data from my Ubuntu laptop to my desktop... the laptop cannot burn anything above cd roms, so I'm trying to setup filesharing. i set it so that the laptop doesn't need a password to be entered, but when i try to access it via win 7 it says please enter your username and pw... so I do that, and then it says enter the user name and pw to access these files, and I've tried everything here, but I just can't get past this.

  1. Have you tried sharing the Win7 drive and copy from the Ubuntu to Win7? I am not sure if Win7 can read the Linux partition.

    I just posted on this one in General Networking.

    W7 can see Linux and vice versa but you need to nobble the password sharing option in W7 then restart it.
