Windows 7: Can't access from Win7 to XP shared folder

Is not that, I already have several folders with different permissions...

Again, is not permission or any other basic config, it's something on Win7 preventing to ask for credentials when trying to go into XP. Although from the "problematic" Sevens I can access the other Sevens just fine, with the credentials window working.

EDIT:

Now I can access if I previously create the account in credentials settings in windows, but this is not a solution since I don't want to use the same user all the time.

EDIT 2:

With the net use command I can put a password on cmd and it works, I can map some folder to Z: for example but from the window explorer there's nothing, I can list shared files from cmd but I can't see them on the explorer no matter what I do.

What's happening here??
