    Hi All,

    I wasn't sure what forum to put this in. I apologize if this is the wrong one.

    Anyhow, I was able to connect to my PC the other day to get some mp3s transferred to my macbook. I did this over the wireless network in my home. I know want to move a few more files but my PC is not showing up as being shared on my mac. And my macbook isn't showing up in the network on my PC. Both computers are connected to the internet now and working. But I just can't access them from each other.

    I just got my first Mac a few days ago so I am very uneducated on this stuff right now. Do you guys have any idea how I could fix this?

    Thanks so much!

    Umm might not be what you are looking for but when I pull video's off my HTPC to the mac I use the Connect to Server app and then smb://WindowsPCname in mycase its smb://HTPC and that always shows the shared out folders on the PC. Hope it helps.
