    Did you open System Prefs and turn on and set up sharing? Where is what you are trying to share located?

    It's called Sharing in System Prefs for the Macbook and turn on File Sharing. Turn it on and then add whatever folders you are trying to share. Also go to Network and then WINS and make sure Workgroup is selected.

    I have chosen Workgroup and i didn't meed to change anything in sharing because file sharing is already checked off? I didn't change anything it was already like that?

    File Sharing has to be turned on and the folder you want to share need to be dragged into the box

    What is the exact file path for the media that you put into the entry field. Take a screenshot if necessary.
