    Hi there
    I just set up new home network, everything works fine except one thing
    filesharing. I know that there is a problem when trying to connect fro
    XP to Vista, I read thousands of threads about it, but I have *othe
    problem*
    I have a laptop running on WV (not Volkswagen but Windows Vista) and
    PC running on Windows XP Pro. They're both in same workgroup and ca
    see each other, so far so good. I can access shared XP HDD drive fro
    Vista and even can browse it (like watch pics etc.), however when I tr
    to copy a file from XP to Vista (remember, accessing the drive fro
    Vista laptop), it transfers, but after finishing error dialogu
    appears, tells me that I don't have the rights to do that and gives m
    two choices - repeat (probably in case I would get the rights) o
    cancel. After canceling the file disappears and so I can't transfer an
    single file.Of course I'm logged in as administrator, but did not se
    anything like "Copy as administrator" I browsed for quite a while an
    did not find anyone with same problem, does anyone know anything abou
    it
    Thanks in advance

    Just found out a strange thing - I can freely access (read copy) Shared
    documents folder... That solved my problem, I can transfer files
    through there, however...

  5. Thank you for the update. By the way, the system error 67 can be the file sharing issue. This search result may help,

    System ErrorsSystem error 67 - The network name cannot be found System Error 71 - The network request was not accepted System error 85 has occurred. ...
