    I'm having a touch of trouble getting my Mac and PC to play nicely together. I followed this guide and got the two connected to each other, but I'm having two problems:

    1. When I browse the folder I have networked (the desktop of the family account), I don't see any files or folders.
    2. When I try to drop a file from my Mac into the networked desktop folder, I receive this error: "the operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items".

    In Windows, in the share tab of the properties of the desktop folder, I have checked both the "allow this folder to be shared over a network" and "network users can change my files" checkboxes. Am I missing something? Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
