Have you got Zonealarm firewall? if so you'll have to disable it to acess folders on each computer.

What OS are you using?
Is one XP home and the other XP Pro?

Try using a user account on each computer with the same user name and same password.

If they can see each other then it has to be a share/permissions problem.
