Are they actually there? Can you view them??
If that's the case, you've lost permission to do otherwise. The cure is to take ownership of the files/folders. You add your username and give full control. With folders, you can cause files and subfolders to "inherit" permissions from the parent. Does this help?
i can view them, and all the permissuon boxes are checked
Sounds like you're blocked at the laptop
Can you access and browse the share you want to send the files to? I'll presume you have "Simple File Sharing turned off on both machines". Make sure you've set up identical users with identical passwords on both and that any firewall settings allow local network traffic. When all else fails, I generally find that using the administrator account works best.
SFS is off on both machines

i even turned off both firewalls (after unplugging from the net) thinking that something had changed in the settings, still no luck....
