  1. They both are in the same workgroup.They are both on a wireless network. They both folders set to share. The xp shows up as a media device on the 7 but only opens in windows media player. The 7 shows up on the xp but wont allow access. Help? Or a guide somewhere for windows 7 to xp networking.
