If you're just transferring data, why not go get a thumb drive or an external hard drive? Beats fighting through network issues.

So, I assume you're cloning the drive from one to the other??

Yeah, good luck with that. Easy as pie on a desktop. Laptops, not so much....

Why?

Because my HP network/workstation/laptop logins and passwords are the SAME between them.
What version of Windows? Windows XP Home?

XP doesn't like to let you share the root of a drive. Are you sharing a folder or the drive?

What steps have you taken so far?

1) Enabled File and Print Sharing
2) Set Folder permissions to allow others to change files in the folder (write permissions)
3) Checked that the User has write permissions.

Can you see the folder if you type the following in the address bar of Windows Explorer;

\\$machinename$\

Substitute $machinename$ for the actual name of the other PC being mindfull not to use the description as opposed to the name.

Details man, we need details, and if there'* one thing you're good at Bill, it'* details

Cheers,

This is my old and new laptops (mobile workstations). Both running XP Pro. Both were on my home network just fine. Yes, sharing was enabled.

The problem is that I was logged in on BOTH with the same username and password (hp network login and pc login).

I'm not simply cloning the drive. I'm only moving over what I need.

I'll try making another login to the local machine (new laptop) ONLY, and log in when I get home on that laptop with the new login (pre-set to administrator rights). I'll log into my old laptop using my default login.

It should work fine then.

I don't understand, you don't need to map a network drive to transfer files...

I've never had any problems with mapped drives in XP. Guess its the login names or something. Good luck with permissions! What a PITA THAT can be.
