Enabling File sharing between two laptops having different version of Windows

Q: Enabling File sharing between two laptops having different version of Windows

Hi,

I have following 2 laptops with the mentioned details.

Notebook 1:-
(HP Pavilion dv2000)
OS: Windows XP professional Version 2002 Service pack 2
Local Area Connection Device Name: Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
Notebook 2:-
(HP Pavilion tx2000)
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
Local Area Connection Device Name: NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller

I don't have any kind of internet connectivity.
My only purpose is to share my files in both of these notebooks between each other.
How can I achieve this? I tried googling this but could not found anything desired.

I am totally novice to networking.So if possible provide me some detailed steps to set up the desired networking and what all will be required to set up the same.

Also when I execute "ipconfig" command on any of the above mentioned machines I get the message "media disconnected".Can anybody explain me the reason behind this?
Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Enabling File sharing between two laptops having different version of Windows

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

"Media disconnected" means your either network interface devices are turned off or if on, nothing is plugged into the ethernet port and/or your wireless card is not connected to a network.

Hi all,

My files from my laptop are always visible by other devices on the same network.

For example, I turned on my laptop and my TV can see all the files on my laptop. (In the pictures folder, videos etc...)

I have attached a screenshot below.

It seems to only apply to my LAN network not my WiFi. My TV and my laptop are connected to the same WiFi network and when I do that, my TV can see my files. But if I used a LAN cable directly from the modem, the TV can no longer see my files.

How can I solve this problem?
Thanks!

A:Windows keeps enabling file sharing

Looks like from that picture, that Media streaming is on. and thus your other devices on the network can see you pictures etc.

Not sure why this isn't working on LAN though... have a few ideas, but I am not too familiar with this setup...

Is it possible to connect 2 laptops - one windows 7 the other xp to just share files. I've done this with 2 xp laptops easily with a cat5 cable.

We are downloading pictures from a camera to one pc and need to then transfer to the other. There's no internet involved.

What would be the best way to do this? I can't get it to work with the cat 5; crossover seems to involve the internet, usb uses transfer software and isn't what I need. I just need to copy over images from a shared folder from one laptop to another.

Thanks.

Easy to do if you have either a "null modem ethernet cable" also called a "crossover " cable.

If you are going through a router all you need is a regular ethernet cable.

Are you using "homegroup" to network these two or just file sharing?

I have a netbook (home 64bit win10) and a PC (64bit pro win7) sharing the same wired hub. I want them to be entirely 'un-networked' so that no communication between them is possible. I have tried to turn off 'file and printer sharing' on my PC (because i assume i should) but when i reboot i find it turned back on. I've seen this problem addressed in this and other forums, but no solution that i could comprehend.

I also have a (VMP74) media player running off the hub and would like to access video files on my PC from that device, but only if that does not compromise access between netbook and PC.

I should add - in case it's not obvious - that i really don't have much of a clue what i'm doing and am very confused with the myriad options. Particularly the 'local' 'home or work' 'public' 'all' and media streaming options, whatever they are.

I'd be grateful if someone could explain and/or confirm what radio buttons to tick to achieve what i want to do. Many thanks

hey there,

In the Network and Shaing center, Network Discovery, Printer Sharing, File Sharing and Media Sharing are all disabled. (Password protected sharing is not)

I would like to enable these features, but attempting to do so yields the critical error, "The specified service does not exist as an installed service". I don't have a vista installation disc, so I can't do a repair install. Attached is the relevant Event Viewer log event (1050).

In the Services configuration window, I have ensured the following services are all enabled (as I understand they are related to network sharing)
Application Layer Gateway Service

Hello, and welcome to the Vista Forums!

Let us see what we can do! Please follow all three steps, even if Steps 1 and 2 resolve all problems.

STEP ONE (registry backup):

ERUNT - Download here
Why? This ensures we have a valid registry backup. ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to store a complete backup of your registry and restore if needed. Removing modern malware infections often requires making changes to the registry, and a corrupt registry can prevent a system from booting. Compatible with Windows NT, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 32 & 64-bit versions.

Download ERUNTDouble-click erunt_setup.exe to run.Follow the prompts and install using the default configuration (setup language, install location, shortcuts...).Say No to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later.
Start ERUNTChoose a location for the backup
The default location C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT\[today's date] is preferred
The first two check boxes are ticked by default (System registry and Current user registry).Press OKWhen prompted, click YES to create a new folder.Progress bars will show backup status.A confirmation window will popup when complete. Click OK to close.
STEP TWO (Service fix):

Hi--

I'm trying to set up a home network where files/printer on my desktop can be shared over a wireless network. Here's how it's set up:

Desktop is connected to the internet via usb CDMA, which is my only internet connection. All laptops at home connect to the internet through the desktop's CDMA internet connection via a Linksys Wireless Router. there are no problems connecting to the internet, simply 'sharing' the CDMA modem's connection to the local area network.

CDMA modem-desktop-wireless router (via LAN)-laptops (wireless)

Now, I've set up file and printer sharing on the desktop, but since the router get an IP address from the desktop, at the same time giving IP addresses to the wirelessly connected laptops, I cannot 'see' the desktop computer from my laptop.

Now my question is: Is there a way to make all the computers visible to each other using this setup? the key is access to internet, which is only possible via usb (which is why I can't connect the router directly to the modem).

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated

However, when I view the network folder in the family/HP desktop, I only see myself (jayla) and one other user (prana). I don't see the third user (darsh). See 3 attachments from each user view for this desktop .

how to have full control of both laptopsI've learned how to share a folder and access it on my main laptop, but I would like to be able to access the whole C: drive of my other laptop.
I tried sharing C: drive and it indicates it's shared, but when I try to access it always says I don't have permission. I've gone into advanced share and made sure it says no password needed. I have mapped the network drive on main laptop, but as I said when I click on it I need permission.
As far as I can tell both laptops have different accounts.
I tried following the post that was solved on networking asking for password. On my Win 7 laptop I created another account and named it 2ndAdmin. Logged on to new account and shared C: drive. Went to my main laptop Win 8.1 and mapped network \\Dell\C drive on my Toshiba but it still asks for admin permission.
I must be doing something stupid

I'am probably missing something real simple. Can you step me in the right direction?

In Vista and later the Administrative account set up during install or on preloaded machines, is not the real Administrator account. It's roughly equivalent to the "Operator" account on NT 4 Server. See the link below to enable the real Admin account. But even so, sharing whole drives does not usually go smoothly.

Hi,

I am fairly new to Windows 7 (having come from XP Pro, been using that for years) and I am having a little problem trying to successfully share my printer.

Setup:
Desktop machine running Win 7 Home Premium 64bit. Cable connection to router and printer. Wife and kids all have Vista Home 32bit laptops and are all wireless to the router.

With my old setup (Same wiring, different desktop PC) I didn't have any issues sharing the desktop printer with the laptops via the router. However, trying to do the same setup with Windows 7 and I can't seem to get it to work!

When I changed the desktop machine I deleted the old printer setup from the laptops and set it up again. Each laptop can find the networked printer (as it is setup as shared by the desktop), programs (i.e. MS Word) will see the printer if you try to printer but it won't actually print anything.

Anyone think of any particular things in Windows 7 that I may have missed? I am assuming it is something on the new machine as that is the only thing that has changed.

Thanks

This problem has been ongoing for a while, and it continues to baffle me. A few months ago the volume on my computer suddenly became much lower. First it was one laptop and then it was my second, and it happened around the same time. The sound settings on both laptops are at max across the board. The device manager in both laptops say the sound card is working properly and I checked to see if I had the most up to date drivers and it says I do.

So I'm stumped as to what is causing this. I do not use plug in speakers for either machine, I just use the standard internal speakers that came with both laptops. This leads me to believes that some form of malware is causing this but I'm running Avast internet security on both computers and it says nothing has infected them. So what is causing this mysterious low sound volume? It's the most frustrating issue I've ever encountered. One of the laptops is running Windows 7(the newer laptop) and the older one is running Windows Vista.

In Vista, what happens when you enable password protected file sharing over normal file sharing?

I realize it requires credentials but what is changed on the system to require this?

If I enable just File Sharing (and not the password protected option) and have the share/NTFS permissions set for a user, connecting to the share fails as it never prompts for the username/password.

When you turn on password protected sharing you are prompted then for a username/password. What I want to know is what changes on the system to then prompt for credentials?

Same thing in reverse. If I set the 'require password for sharing' and have the group 'Everyone' in the share and NTFS permissions I am still prompted for credentials if I connect.

Thanks!

Years ago, I wrote batch files in DOS that would easily do this but in looking at my shortcuts, do not see any way to alter them.

Thanks

How to find windows version, build number and revision number?

Click Start, type regedit and press Enter to open the Windows registry
Navigate to the registry key – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
On the right panel, you will find the key CurrentBuildNumber.The value of this key is your Windows Build Number. Then find a key called CurrentVersion and its value is your windows version i.e. the version of your windows vista, windows xp, etc. You will also find keys called EditionID and ProductId to know the windows edition and product id.

Good day,

I'm a administrator in a small network located in Saudi supporting engineer's in Plant Construction.

The situation is this, we have Windows 2003 server set up with active directory in it and we had joined a windows xp pc to be a file server that will serv a group of engineer from different company than us..

That file server was created by one of my college before his contract expired without looking for the possibility that after several months that company will dispatch much more engineers than he expected.

So the problem now is, the members of that company cannot access the files since only 10 persons is the maximum access for xp..

Question: Is their an way that we can increase the number of maximum simultaneous access without changing the operating system?

Hope somebody can help...

Hi:

We have a 6 user office (Mac/Windows) networked with Workgroup. One of the computers doubles as a desktop for the secretary and file server. The computer runs Windows XP Pro. This computer shares a folder and everyone can access it. I need to restrict access to this folder or a subfolder.

I have used Administrative Tools to setup users and groups. I can't find a way to setup privileges and restrict access to a folder depending on the user.

Any ideas are surely welcome.

Thanks,

I have a CNC machine with a Windows 95 PC controller and I would like to be able to share files with this computer over our network from Windows 7 and later OS machines.  Oddly enough, we have been able to get the 95 machine folder share to show up
on our Windows 7 computer and we can put files onto the 95 folder from the Windows 7 machine, but we cannot access the Windows 7 share from the Win 95 machine.  This appears to be somewhat expected, but this connection is not very reliable.
I am thinking that we could install a Windows XP machine to establish a Folder Share between it and the Win 95 machine, then find a way to share the XP folder with our Windows 7 machines.  We have very limited options to install software on the Win
95 machine since it is running proprietary CNC machine software, but we could install any software we like on the Windows XP machine to get it to share files in mixed environment.
Will this work?  Suggestions?

I have tried to set up a share of X, however, Both user 1 and 2 on PC B will have access to it. I can not differentiate them.
 

A:File sharing on Windows 7

Hi,

To connect to systems on win 7 to share folders, they need to belong to thesame home group.
What you do is enter Control Panel > Network. Click the HomeGroup Link. Tick the libraries to share. Follow on and click Apply. It will generate a homegroup password. copy this password to use on the second system.

Now on the 2nd system, go to Control Panel > Network. It should have detected the created home group. follow it up until it gets to the area where u put the password from the first system. enter it and apply. This should be ok.

Finally, on the 1st pc, copy the folder u want to share to the document library that has been shared so u get to access it from the second system from network icon.

I'm trying to move all of my music files from my Mac (OS 10.4) to my PC (Win XP Pro SP2). I was told that you can just connect them both together through the ethernet port. When I do that my ethernet connection says that its connected, but besides that nothing happens. I can't connect to the Mac unless I have my wireless connection up. I tried just sending the files over the wireless connection but my Mac is USB 1.1, and it took 5 minutes just to send 2 of the 2000 songs.

So is it really possible to just connect the two? Or what would be an easier way. If there is nothing I can go set them both up next to the router, but that'll be my last resort.

Thanks,
Aj
 

A:Windows/Mac File Sharing

The Mac is smart enough to use a regular ethernet cable but the PC might be needing a crossover cable to directly connect. So if you can't make it work with a straight cable then you can use the straight cable to go to your router, the instructions below are the same either way.

You need to enable windows file sharing on the Mac. System Preferences -> Sharing. Then you have a couple options. You can either enable a full access shared directory on your PC and browse to it through opening up Network and connecting to the shared directory (you might want to disable wireless so it doesn't try to connect that way). OR you can browse to your Mac from your PC by typing in the IP address of your Mac, then entering your username and password for your Mac. Then you have full access to the same directories you do with your username on the Mac.

OK, I've read the OLD posts on this problem, and tried the 'fix' described. Doesn't work. I've reset the permissions, I've done everything I can think of, and this blasted OS will NOT allow me to change from the LOCKED/Nobody setting.

HELP! This is driving me crazy [crazier?] and I REALLY need to get to my files, as it won't even allow me to upload photos and files to my website!

There HAS to be an easy fix for this. And no, going into control panel/networking and changing the permissions does NOT work.

Do you have a firewall running on your PC? If yes, try disabling it and see if you can share files. If yes, you'll need to create a new firewall rule that allows him access to the files.

How about on Windows 7 to 8 ( Windows 8 to windows 7 ) How?

A:File sharing between Windows 7 and 8

Hello Douglas,

You could share files between Windows 7 and 8 the same way between other Windows 7 PCs.

The easiest way would be to create a homegroup on one PC, then have the other PC join the homegroup. Homegroup - Create in Windows 8

Homegroup - Join in Windows 8

Homegroup - Create

Homegroup - Add Computer or Join
In addition, you could set files/folders to be shared with the homegroup to be able to share with all or specific PCs on the homegroup. File Sharing - "Share with" & "Stop Sharing" in Windows 8
Hope this helps,
Shawn
