    map a network drive by

    Make a file on the desktopand put the movie you want to send to the other computer in there, right click and go to properties make it a file shared on the network. Next get that computers IP address by going to "start" "run" type in command. A black window will come up type in "ipconfig" the computers IP address and other networking addresses will come up, write down the "IP address". Go to the computer you want to send the file to and right click on "My Computer" go to map a network drive, a box will come up type in:

    \\ip address\name of shared folder
