Default any probs with transfer between macbbookpro and Win XP systems?

I recently purchased a Macbook Pro laptop, snow leopard 10.6ish for mobility. The main studio rig is a Quadcore Win XP system and it has been rock solid for quite some time. I transferred a session from the XP system to the Mac, edited drums, etc., transferred back to the XP system and started getting all kinds of errors including "unable to autoback up", hardware buffer errors, access violations to name a few. Never had these until now. (no new plugs or cracked plugs on the system)

The Mac has the latest version of ProTools 8.03 and the XP box has 8.01.

I realize I am not giving a lot of system specifics, I just wanted to see if there was anyone out there who have any experience with this type of problem.

After hearing about all of the white noise issues with 8.03 I am not going to update to 8.03 but unfortunately, snow leopard requires the latest version.

FWIW, I move sessions between my i7 quad PC/LE system and an a MacPro/HD system all the time and have not had any issues(other than the occasional plugin snafu as we don't have all the same extras).

I started in this business with nothing..........and I have most of it left

BTW, my name is Dave, but most people call me.........................Dave

How did you transfer those files to the PC? Is it possible that they are compressed on the PC, or have incorrect permissions?
