In Windows 7 when i go to access the shared folder it says domain "xxxxx" under the login screen. What does this mean? Perhaps this is causing the problem.
I am not on a domain, all the same workgroup.
foxballz, your problem is probably caused by NT Lan Manager authentication level.
open Local Security Policy under Administrative Tools.
Navigate down the tree: Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options
Find: Network Security:LAN Manager authentication level
Set To: Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated
