    I have no problem sharing folders and files between my iMac running Leopard 10.5.8 and Windows 7 Pro desktops. On my iMac I can't see the shared printer that is connected via USB on my Windows 7 Pro desktop.

    When I go into Network in Windows 7 I can see my iMac.

    What might I be missing? Thank you.

    I have the same problem. I just add printers by their IP address instead.
