User access will not take passwords - world book live

I have had my drive mapped and everything working for years now.  I have added a second machine to the network and mapped the same folders on that machine.  Now on my first machine the mapped folders no longer work and ask me for a User and Password.  Not a single User name or password work in the dialogue box.  I have even setup all of the folders as “public” and still nothing works.  

I’m using the WD discovery software

My set-up

WDwbl - firmware is current - wired (network local) set up.

Machine 1: Vista - zero changes have been made (did work fine in the past not anymore)

Machine 2: Win 7 pro - mapped drive “folders” works just fine.

All users have admin rights and I do know all the passwords.

All systems, network, etc. Are up to date, current firmware.  

Any help anyone can provide would be great!!!

What does Machine 1 do if Machine 2 is turned off?

Hold on. No such thing as a World Book Live,

Do you have a My Book World, or a My Book Live?

“What does Machine 1 do if Machine 2 is turned off?”

Nothing changes.

I wonder if it is that issue where Windows Vista authenticates to the MBW before you manage to send your desired user name and password. Windows Vista does not allow more than one set of authentication credentials to the same server. The dialogue box will keep on appearing even if the right user-name and password is provided.
