    Hello,

    My pc has 3 partitions: Windows XP, Windows 7, DATA.
    I think I have set up the network settings correct.
    I followed the guide for xp-win7 network.

    In Windows7:
    I can share any folder from the data partition and access them from any pc.
    When I share a folder from the win xp or win7 partition, I can see the folder from any pc, but I can't access. I get a message access denied, you don't have the right permissions.

    Any idea's what might cause this or a solution.

    You can always add the everyone group to that folder(s) NTFS permissions under the security tab.
    You can specify just read,list,execute or just select full control if it is just you accessing them.

    when i try to use XBMC (xbox media centre) with win 7 and do samba sharing i would get an error about requiring a username and pass, even though the same setup worked on previous OS's. How i overcame this was choosing work for network location, having no Homegroup, and this is the thing you should try, uninstall Windows Live ID Sign In assistant if installed. As soon as i uninstalled that my SMB worked like normal. It has something to do with encryption i believe.

    Thanks, that did it. Now the favorites folder can also be shared. :)

    Thanks, but I didn't have that installed.
