I'm at my wits end for this problem.
I have three different computers in play on my network, a Windows 2000 machine which is my main computer, a Windows 98 computer which is my secondary, and a Windows XP laptop which is only used on occasion.
All three are connected via my Belkin wireless router and the only computer to use a wire is my Windows 98 machine. But here's where my problem gets interesting.
Windows 2000 and Windows 98 have no problems copying files between each other. 98 copies from 2000 and 2000 copies from 98 flawlessly. Windows XP on the other hand...does not. When I try copying files from my Windows 2000 computer to my Windows XP computer from the XP computer, I get that same message! Cannot Copy File, The Parameter is Incorrect. I've looked far and wide on this problem and nothing really makes sense. The external hard drive issue is debunked because it won't copy from the main drive either. I set up network shares, that doesn't work. I can see everything on my computer but when you try to copy and paste, I get that stupid error message. It's not just the laptop either because I've installed Windows XP on a client's computer and I had the same problem right after a fresh installation. I honestly haven't tested copying files from the Windows 98 computer to Windows XP but I know in the past I've never had issues like this. It's getting me very upset because nothing really seems to solve my problem. It's bad enough I might have to upgrade my Windows 2000 computer to at least Windows XP because I have a piece of software that just will not run on 2000 but I cannot have these issues on my network either. I really utilize my home network for what it was meant to be, not just to share the internet and this is beginning to be a big problem for me. Any input would be appreciated!
