How can I load music and pictures to my ps3 from my PC

In Windows Vista, I would go to network management and click a box to share my media. My PS3 would see my PC and then I could download mp3s and pictures to save them to the PS3's hard drive.

In windows 7, I am confused, it seems that it only wants to share with other windows 7 computers. My PS3 sees the PC in the network but when I selected it, it tells me that my PC does not recognize my PS3.

what else should I do. I dont want to stream music. I just want to grab mp3 files and pictures to save them in the PS3 hardrive like I did in Vista without downloading some third party software.

Any one know how?

Thank you, I will try this

In reply to: Just checking.

I used google, and came with a lot stuff that had me downloading third party stuff, some of it scary and maybe outdated. I am always nervous when downloading stuff that will hijack some network functions.

This is a good find, I will try it, thank you.
