I'm trying to view/share files with my old Windows XP desktop and my new 2011 MBP. How do I do that? I put the pictures/music in the shared folder on the Windows XP desktop, and my Macbook sees the computer, but it keeps saying the connection has failed. What do I need to do to share files?

Try dropbox, its free. It is almost instant and will do what you are looking for and save a copy in the cloud also. No need to worry about mac/XP sharing issues.

I have an account, I'm trying to stream all my photos and music.
