Is your desktop C$ drive shared?

Right-click "My Computer" - Manage - System Tools - Shared
Folders - Shares
Verify that "C$" is in the "Shared Folder" column.
Verify that you are trying to connect with an account with
Administrator privilege.
Right-click the "C" drive - Properties - Security
and make sure the settings allow access.

HTH,
John


Yes it is shared and yes access is also allowed. i am posting

Sometimes the command prompt gives better error messages.
From the machine you are trying to connect from, bring up a command
window (Start-Run-Cmd) and enter the command:

net use * \\RAMEEZ\C$ /user:RAMEEZ\administrator

When asked, provide the password for the administrator. If you have a
different logon user that is in the "Administrators" group, use that
name instead of "administrator" in the command line and provide the
appropriate password. See what kind of error you get.

HTH,
John

You might try this:

"Error message when you try to access a mapped drive that is mapped to
a Windows XP-based computer from a Windows Vista-based computer:
"System error 5 has occurred""

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947235

Other that that, I'm clueless.

John tired to tell you to disable the simple file sharing this is how
you do it.

By default, workgroup computers have simple file sharing enabled.
Domain computers always have simple file sharing disabled.

On the home XP Pro machine, go to Control Panel Folder Options
View, scroll to the end of the list of Advanced settings, and un-check
simple file sharing.

This solve the problem

Many thanks
