Windows 7: access denied when sharing second hdd

access denied when sharing second hdd

i just put an extra 250gb drive into my computer and it works great. but when i try to share it with the other computers in my house (an asus net book running xp, a desktop running windows 7 ultimate, and a junker desktop running xp) i always get an access denied warning when i try to open the drive from any of the other computers.

i thought it maybe something wrong with my network and shareing settings but i can still access my shared folders on the c drive over the network, its just blocking my d drive. any thoughts?
