Windows 7: sharing between 7 and XP

sharing between 7 and XP

Hello, i'm having troubles sharing files between windows 7 home premium x64 and win xp pro. The win xp desktop can see and access two of my win 7 PCs no problems, but when i try to acces the win xp OS i'm asked for user name and password. I've created a new user account on XP with a password and tried using those but with no luck.
The pop-up menu looks something like user: pw: domain: Acer-pc.
Acer-pc being the notebook with windows 7.

I should mention that remite desktop also works from windows 7 to XP.

It seems that after sharing some folders it no longer requires a password to join.
