    Make sure both PCs have an account w/ the same username/password. Also, don't mix Windows 7 homegroups and XP simple file sharing. XP doesn’t support homegroups. Both Windows 7 and XP should be using simple file sharing to insure compatibility.

    can you tell me how can i check that both PC have same account?
  3. Go to Start->Run (XP) or Start->search box (Windows 7) and type "nusrmgr.cpl" (no quotes) and hit enter. It brings up user accounts. Either add or modify an account w/ the same name and password.
