Connecting Xp To Win7 File Server

I have a windows 7 ultimate desktop that serves as my computer most of the time but also the home file server. I also have a windows vista ultimate laptop and an xp pro laptop. I have the same user accounts and passwords on all computers. The vista laptop works daily with the windows 7 computer as it's server for files and all seems to work well. However the xp laptop is not used much and is off most of the time. When i do try to use it i get "access denied" errors when i try to access the files on the windows 7 desktop. Rebooting the xp computer has no effect but rebooting the windows 7 computer resolves the issue for this current time and all work well.

How do i fix this permanently?

Media Player Cd Burn Error

It starts burning and then stops when it gets to 99%. This error message pops up on the screen: windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I'm using a laptop with windows 7 that already has a burner inside. Also, when i play the cd in a cd player it seems to work fine. So i'm wondering whyit's displaying that message.

Burning Error In Media Player

I am using windows media player to burn a few cd's and i keep getting the same error message. The error message i get is:windows media player encountered an error while burning. Verify the burner is connected properly and that the disc is clean and not damaged. I use to not have any problems burning cds and now all of a sudden i do. Wmp acts like it is burning the cd and goes through the status completed, but as soon as it gets to 99% complete, the cd kicks out and i get the above error message.

Also, when it 'acts' like it is burning the cd, it goes through the process a lot faster than when it really is burning a cd. I am also using brand new cds, that are not scratched or damaged. I am usinga laptop, so as far as i know, the burner is connected properly. I'm not sure what to do or how to resolve my issue.

Error C00d1199 - Media Player

When attempting to play almost any media file either audio or video, using almost any codec, including those that were previously played without a fault i now always get this error message claiming that the file is not supported or the codec is not known. I can now no longer play any of my music or video files using media player. I am running the 64bit version of windows 7 home premium. I have tried to remove and re-add the media player but the fault remains. In desperation i have tried to replace the codecs for all files but without success. I would like to delete and completely re-install media player but would prefer not to have to re-install windows completely, if no other solution can be found.

Media Player Do Not Stream Mp3 Files To Lg Bd390 Player

Windows media player streams video, pictures to lg bd390 player, but not mp3 files. How can i get to work? I am successfully using wmp12 as upnp server over wireless network to stream video and pictures to lg bd390 blu ray player. However, while the bd390 shows audio file, on selection, it times out suggesting "network congestion issues". Is there a fix to this problem. By the way, nero homemedia 4 essential, which comes with player, does play all media types, but seems to be messing up my network in other ways. I would prefer to get wmp12 to work. I think nero product uses wmp12.

Cannot Connect Ps3 Media Server

I am using windows 7 and i was pleased that when i turned on my ps3 one day i could see the movie files from my pc. Both are connected to the same secured network. For some reason i am now unable to locate my pc on the ps3 and i don't recall changing any settings. The only thing i can think of was the installation of avg security but i am not convinced that this is the issue as i have avg on my laptop and the ps3 can see that computer.

I have been through and checked all sharing settings that i can locate, however, this has not fixed the issue.
