HELP PLEASE - Sharing in vista with xp

  AlexPB 19:13 27 Aug 2009


I have just bought a new dual core laptop with vista home premium loaded. I also have a pc at home running xp home. I have an external hard drive on my pc which i share with other xp computers around the house without any problems by simply going to view workgroup computers within my network places and it appears.

I cannot seem to find my xp pc with the external hard drive on my vista laptop.

Please could somebody tell me in steps what i need to do to be able to see my xp pc on my vista laptop.

Thank you for any help,
