I have an XP and a Windows 7 computer and I cannot access the Windows 7 files from within XP. It asks for a password, and all the passwords I use do not work. What do I do?

Which username/password are you trying? Usually, the file can only be accessed by the creator and administrators on the computer, so try using your username/password for Windows 7, not any of the Windows XP accounts.
