How to share a partition from windows 7 with xp

I have in a workgroup a Windows 7 Ultimate X64 laptop and a Windows XP Pro SP3 desktop PC.
If i try to share a partition from W7 i can see it over network in XP but i can't access the files or folders from it, the error being this one: "\\ComputerName\PartitionName is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if yout have access permissions.
Access is denied."
In W7 i've set Everybody with full access (read and write); both computers have Windows Firewall and BitDefender Internet Security installed on them but doesn't seems to be important since i've tried to use the shared partition from W7 with Firewalls and BitDefenders On and Off and the problem was the same!
I would appreciate any kind of help! I googled a lot untill now and did not find a solution !

Thanks in advance!
