I set up a home network with my desktop & laptop both running XP pro - everything fine. Old laptop packed up, bought new one, Acer Aspire, running Vista Home Premium. Setup Acer to network, can access desktop and copy files from it no bother. When I try to copy from Acer to desktop, I can "see" Acer D drive but not access any files. I can access files from the Public files on Acer. I've removed passwords from Acer D drive but still can't access files from the desktop. Any ideas?
Charliep I have the same a similar set up and had similar problems when I first set up my network. In addition to the advice already given make sure that you have set the Document Properties to sharing, and also clicked the advanced sharing button and ticked 'share this folder'. You should also select the Security tab ans ensude that there is an Everyone group with Full Control. If not click on Edit and Add a group called everyone with full control. Doing this was the only way I could get networking to run smoothly.
