File sharing in Vista

I have two PC's, on running Windows Vista Home Premium and the other is running Windows XP. They are both networked but the XP computer cannot see the Vista Computer on the network, but the Vista computer can see the XP computer.
I also have an Xbox which I use as a media centre. It has no problem accessing shared folders on the XP computer but every time I try to access a shared folder on the Vista computer it asks for a username and password but I've not set one up for accessing shared folders.

I'm stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
