Map a Network drive of XP in 7

In my new laptop, I have migrated to 7, but the majority of my data are still on my XP computer. I tired to used "Map Network Drive" from within the 7 machine to map the C drive of the XP machine, but unsuccessful!

the the workgroup on both machines is the same = WORKGROUP
also from 7, I can remotedesktop the XP machine with all local drives available remotely.

previously, I have mapped between XP machines with no problem, but Im wondering this time why it doest work. is it due to 7-XP incompatibility(!??) or something?

thank you for help
