Why can Windows 7 only access Drop Box & not the rest of my shared files?

I was able to figure out how to access my shared drives on my PC (Windows 7) from my Mac Book Pro (10.6.2), yet I can only copy files from them to my Mac. I cannot add files to the drives on my PC.

From my PC I was able to set up the Drop Box but on the Network I can’t access any other folders other than Public > Drop Box (“You do not have permission to access”).

I have changed all the permissions on both computers to read/write and have shared all of my drives and folders, even tried it without the password.

Any advice? Using the Drop Box is fine but kind of annoying. And forget about the MobileMe/iDisk as I’m transferring large videos.

    Hi Julia,

    Windows sharing is still a little flaky, to my knowledge. I hope the link above helps you out.
