I cant believe this is so difficult.

C1 - windows xp pro sp3+ all updates (this includes LLTPR)
C2 - windows 7 ultimate + updates

I've logged into C2 with an admin account and shared drive V with everyone, giving them full rights. I can access the "users" share with C1 just fine, however when trying to access the V share I get the error : "V is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network recourse. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is denied."

On C2 I've gone through network options and fiddled with EVERY setting flipping them on/off. No luck. None of the google search results have turned up anything I haven't tried. When I try to access the V share with my network media player I am prompted for a username/password. This share shouldn't have a password though. The account that made the share on C2 does not have a password.

There is one place to check is Network and Sharing Center
Control Panel -> Network and sharing Center -> Change Advanced sharing settings"on the left side"
Mine are set to

Section: Home or Work (current Profile)

Network discovery -"Selected" Turn on network discovery

File and Printer shareing -"Selected" Turn on File and Printer Shareing

Public Folder shareing -"Selected" Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the public folders

File Sharing connections -"Selected" Use 128-bit encryption to help protect file sharing connections

Password protected sharing -"Selected" Allow Windows to manage homegroup connections

Also in control panel you need to maybe mess with " HomeGroup "

With windows 7 sometimes it can be a pain.

Did you by chance check to see if Windows firewall or any other firewall were off on both computers because you have to but in a special premission needed for the firewall.

Never used the network wizard, I prefer to stay away from additional layers of BS if avoidable.

I LOVE that song. First heard it in a UT2004 vid: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=WUFZMIYK

But getting back to things I hadnt gone into security permissions like that video shows, instead I had granted full rights to "Everyone" through the sharing portion itself (where you click "share this folder" theres a "permissions" button)

Just made that change but no luck =/

LOL I just realized after switching to the administrator account I didn't disable the firewall there. I"ll have to figure out why the other account didn't work but I got it working from the administrator account.

I'd like to know what the difference in permissions is between the security tab and the file sharing one.

The Security tab controls the basic NTFS access permissions on a directory, folder, or file; the File sharing tab controls access permissions from the network.
Here's where it gets fun: they're (to a point) interrelated.
Say you give the Everyone group network permissions to a directory. You'd think that, well, everyone has access to it over the network. not quite - you also need to give the Everyone group local privs, as well.
