Same thing happend with me.
I am guessing your internet is a bit slow when uploading. If your internet
is pretty slow(mines was at 9kbps) it wont sync. Try reseting your
router/modem. That may help.
Some other causes:
Network problems(as in msn)
There is no compatability issue that I know of. I have a sharing folder with
A freind that is using XP
If that doesnt help, you may be able to compress a picture folder and then
upload it.(right click, send to, compressed/zipped folder)
It also sounds like you have User Account Control(UAC) on. That shouldn't
cause any problems.
