Network access to Windows 7 drives and to VirtualXP drive

By ernst ·
I have Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) on a new computer and also installed the VirtualXP machine. On my home network I also have my old XP desktop machine and an XP laptop. From the Win7 and from the virtualxp I can access the drives on my old desktop and on the laptop (though I often need to map them before that works) but I cannot access the two partions (C and D drives) on my Win7 from either of the two other machines. Neither can I access the VirtualXP drive (virtual C) from any of the machines.
How can I get stop getting the "Access denied" message from Win7 when I try from the XP machines?
And, how can I set up the virtual C drive to be accessible on the network from all machines?
Any suggestions?

HDD formats ? ...

What file format are the HDDs for the old PC and the laptop?

I'm assuming they are both 32-bit XP systems?

All the drives have the NTFS formats and the old PC and the laptop are both 32-bit XP SP3 systems.
