Default Networking question: No access to shared folder

Hi guys

here's to make the story short..

I have 2 computers on a switch, both on MSHOME network, and both using WinXP Pro Sp2

PC 1 has 2 drives, C: and D: partitions for one drive, and E: for the other..

I have shared folders from both D: and E:

Funny thing is, when PC2 tries to get the shares, all shared folders that reside on drive D: are accessible, while all shared folders on the E: drive are NOT ACCESSIBLE.. what gives?

I tried re-sharing the folders in the E: drive, but didnt work..

What am i missing here?

Disable simple file sharing, go into the shared folder, add the everyone group to the security tab.
