    I would assume you have sharing turned on in Windows and that the drive you want to share is accessible to the guest account (or whichever account you have set to access it in Windows).

    If so, my bet is that you have third party security software (like McAfee Security Center or Norton Internet Security) turned on and it's blocking sharing. If the latter, you'll need to consult the documentation to allow that traffic, as well as NetBIOS traffic (which is what helps with name resolution in a workgroup setting) to pass.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
