Greetings all, I hope that someone can help me solve this problem that I am having.
I need to transfer some files from my sister's laptop to my PC and the only way to do this is via a Firewire cable, as her laptop does not have any other type of connection.
My PC XP Home SP2
DSL modem through USB
6 Pin Firewire
Laptop XP Home SP1
4 Pin Firewire
I have tried running network wizard on both PC's and I just cant get them to see each other. I have tried everything I can think of including disabling firewall's on both PC's but at no time can I get them to see each other. In fact in My Network Places when I click on View Workgroup Computer's they will only see themselves if they are attached to the net.
When I click on the icon both PC's report that the 1394 connection is connected, but neither report an IP address. Even in network connections when I set an IP it still doesn't report any.
Please help as I'm at the end of my tether
