Windows XP wont copy files to network location or USB

My windows XP system can see all the network drives that i have mapped on it and it can also browse through all the files and folders created within them.

However I can't transfer any files to the mapped network drives.

I have checked all the permissions out and have ensured that the XP machine has full access to everything (that its allowed to have). I have also tried to put these files onto a USB stick to transfer manually but it wont even put them onto the external device.

Anyone have any ideas on what this could be?


You may have sharing permissions given correctly but you may be missing the NTFS permissions in the security tab.

Note: for windows home, you will have to manually enable the security tab, it does not show by default. XP Pro has it available by default.

Check this guide to see how both type of settings look like.
