    Home network access problem

    Please bear with me, this problem is a little tricky to explain.
    I have 2 computers (A and B) on a home network, connected through a router and hard-wired with Cat5 cable.
    They are both running Windows XP Pro SP3 and file/print sharing is turned on.
    Both computers can Ping each other successfully.
    Both computers can "Net View" each other successfully.
    Both computers can see the other's shared folders in My Network Places.
    Computer A can access the shared folders on Computer B and transfer files, etc.
    Computer B can ONLY access the SharedDocs folder on A and not any of the other shared folders.
    When I try, I get an Access Denied window.

    I cannot understand why I can access one folder (SharedDocs) but none of the others.

    Thanks for any insights you might provide.
