New Vista laptop can't see XP pc on same network

By jim ·
I have a four pc home network with two Vista pcs and two XP pcs. Bothe Vista pcs are Home Premium and one XP is Home and one is Pro. From my new Vista laptop I can see the other Vista but none of the XPs. I can see and access one of the XPs media sharing devices (Windows Media Player) being shared on the network but that is it. I renamed the new laptop's workgroup to MS HOME like the rest of the pcs but it didn't amke any difference. Any ideas?

you get to the xp machine by: winkey + r, type "\\IP_Address\Share_Name"? It then should prompt you for log in.

Check that the network location is set to Private.
