windows media player 11, download free if dont have it, library drop down arrow, media sharing and you should see on icon on both computers displaying a name saying what ever the name of the computer is, but you must put all the stuff you want to share in a shared folder to do this go to, my computer, shared documents, and put music in the music folder and vids in the vids folder and pics in the pics folder, if this doesnt work consult an expert because i have done this millions of times and got good results for myself and my friends who own xbox, ps3 it works with all systems, good luck.
