    Ok, so I've got a new Macbook Pro, and I'm loving it, but I'm having trouble see the files on our family's Windows computer. I can see some of the files on my brother's laptops, one of which is a Mac. I changed the sharing stuff on our family computer, but it still doesn't show anything on my Mac. If someone could try and explain this to me, it'd be great.

    Also, I can't get my family's computer's printer to show up. I have the settings on the family computer as "Share this printer", but it still doesn't show up on my Mac. Again, help is greatly appreciated.
