Have you set the folders that you want to have available over the network as "shared" in Windows 7?

Right click the folder that you want to have available, select "Share with" and enter the Username that you log into the Xbox with.

thanks to Marbles65 on another forum for this suggestion:

has the xbox got a wifi adapter ? if its the older 360 it needs one plugged in,, if its the new 360 its built in,,, if he has the older type with no adapter use an ethernet cable from xbox to router,,, then allow network sharing in win7. also look in the link for more info,,,,
