Unable to access shared folder but able to access shared printer

Dear Windows 7 gurus,

I have 2 desktops and 2 laptops all running Windows 7 32 bit.

Desktop A: Acts as a server for my movies, music, and printer.
Desktop B: personal use.
Laptop A: personal use.
Laptop B: personal use.

My problem started when I reformat my 2 laptops, after the reformat, I am now unable to access the shared folder but I am still able to access the shared printer. The folder now displays as empty. I am also not using a homegroup to share the folders and printer.

I have been searching for answers in about 2 weeks now but to no avail.

Please help! Thanks in advance.
