    Although solved I cannot explain. I have a new Dell desktop wit
    Vista Home Premium SP1 (64) with Workgroups changed to MSHOME to matc
    my older Dell running XP-HOme. Vista Networking and Sharing Contro
    configured as Private and all Sharing 'On\\\\" except Password. N
    problem mapping to my XP's C, D and E partitions. Although Documents an
    Setting would open, not the \\\\"myfile\\\\" sub folder where I wante
    to view Favorites and move some to my new computer.

    After much trial and error found that if I specifically selected th
    Favorites folder and under properties chose Sharing and selected optio
    to share, I then was successful at least in mapping this folder an
    transferring necessary files although I still could not open i
    attempted through the mapped C drive where I could not get beneath th
    Documents and Setting folder

    Would appreciate anybody who might help explain what certainty turne
    out to be a fine workaround for for my proble
