Try with the IP of the PC that have the shared folder I mean:

\\, for example, the system ask you for autentication and open a window with the shared folders that the PC have.

let me know the OS of the computer:

you can follow the following steps:-

Step 1:get the ip address of both the computers
make sure they are in the same work group and has different computer name.
step 2:make sure they are able to ping each other , if not disable the firewall
step 3:share the drive or the folder that you wants to share, by right clicking on it and click on properties and allow permission for everyone.
step 4:type in the shared name
step 5:you can disable password protected in vista computer,if it is a vista computer.
step 6:from the other computer go to network->view work group computers and click on the desired computer , you should be able to see the shared folder or drive.
