Ok, here is the question, I dont know if im in the right area though. I have 2 older homemade computers running windows xp home and a new one running win 7. The old computers can share with each other via my network places and also the ps3 and my led tv can as well, but on my win 7 pc i can only stream where on the other xp computer can copy the files from the video/picture folder from one pc to the other. Is there a way to do that with win 7 from the xp pc? I want to get all the videos/pictures from my xp pc to my win 7 pc. I tried the windows easy transfer WET thing but the old computer will not connect to the new one. It will just saying trying to connect. Please any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have to use the same name on all three computers, such as Workgroup. Windows 7 'Homegroup' will only work between two (or more) Windows 7 computers.
