I understand this question has been asked and answered hundreds of times but i still need help. I have 3 machines running XP and one desktop running windows 7. I have had the Win7 machine over a year and have hardly used it due to not being able to see the xp machines. The win7 machine was initally running home premium and i was told by a number of people that home premium would not being able to connect to XP machines and i would need to upgrade to proffesional or higher. I reluctantly purchased an upgrade to Ultimate but am still have the same problem. One of the XP machines is used as a storage centre for media, files etc and also has printers and scanners connected to it. all of the xp machines can access drives and use printers and scanners but win 7 machine won't even acknowledge they are there. I need simple plain english solution as i have found myself struggling to understand some of the other solutions i have found on the web. Please help someone or i think the win 7 machine will end up on Ebay!!!
