Copying photographs from XP stops the network dead.

    I posted this to general, but apparently it would be better here:

    I have a strange problem. I now have my network shares on my new Vista
    machine. Everything works fine until I want to copy several files fast
    from an XP machine to a network share. Then the network slows to a
    halt and the vista machine disappears off the radar briefly.
    It happens when I am copying photographs from a memory stick via an XP
    machine to a Vista share. Or when copying TomTom (Navigator update)
    files from the net to a Vista share.
    In both cases the Vista machine temporarily disappears from the radar
    and the XP machine (of course) slows to a halt too.
    Why just when copying photographs or navigator files from either a
    memory stick or the net? Usually after about nine files. Not when
    copying directly between XP and Vista shares.

    PS: I have now disabled v6 TCPIP... will that help?

    I have the same "D:\photographs" folder available as a share on the
    Vista machine and on other machines as T:\.

    I note that when I try to copy photographs to it, T:\ disappears from
    the radar both on the XP machine and locally.

    But the local folder D:\photographs is still there and accessible.
