Windows 7: Unable to access/view my NAS folders after reinstalling Windows 7

Unable to access/view my NAS folders after reinstalling Windows 7

Hi guys, have a bit of a problem on my hands and have no choice but to ask for help after (what I think lol) exhausting all options. The NAS is a Dlink 320 Sharecenter, I have already set it up to view files from any computer, and I am able to access and view all my videos etc from any other computer on the network (1 W8 laptop & 1 W7 laptop). However after doing a clean install on my desktop computer, I cannot access my folders/view them at all. I am able to access the admin page for the NAS and change settings etc, but have zero access to actually stream any media and read/write. I've attached some screenshots below for clarity.

Anyone have any ideas? Thought I may add, that I added an exception to my firewall (Windows) & changed the local security policy. Still no joy..

Thanks for the help Chev65, I just tried this with 128bit encryption disabled. No Joy

I also pinged the NAS, it sent and received 4 packets with no issues at all. So I have no clue why I have no access from my desktop. Is it a possibility the NAS belongs to another workgroup, hence all existing devices having free access to it?
