Pretty typical. Oah the joys of peer to peer. Couple of things. To make this easier on your self make a single username/password that you put on ALL machines that you want to share something. They have to be spelled the same on all machines as well as the password.
Chances are in your example it might work when you try to access the share when you type the computer your trying to get to as well.
So username and password prompt
(computer name)\(username with rights made on THAT machine)
so Example... kewlfiles\frankrizzo then password iLoveCheese
