Odd XP Vista Network Issue
I went through a lot of the problems I have seen here where the XP and Vista
computers can't see each other and such. Downloaded all the patches and set
all the permissions on both machines. Have full access XP machine to Vista.
Where my problem is, when I do discovery from the Vista machine, it detects
the XP machine as a "Media Device". I can play all of my music files on my
Vista system that are on the XP system, but I am unable to access any other
files on the XP system. I have the full C drive set as shared, but only the
media files show up across the network. Anyone else encounter this problem
and find a solution?

You may want to use icacls utility to check the permissions on the C drive.

Not having a problem accessing the Vista computer from XP it is the other way
around, the XP computer is only detected as a "Media Device"

Michael,

Is the XP computer XP Home, XP Pro with Simple File Sharing, XP Pro with
Advanced File Sharing and Guest access, or XP Pro with Advanced File Sharing and
non-Guest access?

Recently bought a new Sony Laptop and had the same problem with my
network and two XP desktops. After several hours of wrestling with the
problem I eventually undeleted the trial copy of Norton Security
software and everything was immdiately sorted out. Both XP computers are
still show as 'media devices' but are also shown as network computers
and I have full access to shared files, printers etc.
