Hello everyone,

I have a PC with Windows XP and a PC with Windows 7 but I can't figure out how I can connect them to the same home network so I can copy files back and forth, like I can easily do with two (or more) XP computers.

The only way I've been able to move any files (like large video files for example) between the two systems is to put them on a thumb drive or external drive and copy them over. But that's very tedious and time consuming having to do that all the time.

Is this even possible? Please tell me how if it is. If it's not, then I'm open to any and all suggestions to make my life easier regarding this issue.

Thank you so much,

Lee
