This is probably due to not having the appropriate permissions for the share. You will likely need to change the server share to allow everyone write/modify privileges, or logon with an authorized account. If you are logging on to a domain you may need to use the fully qualified user name if the PC is not a member of the domain, using a user name such as  JDoe@SomeDomain.abc  or  SomeDomain.abc\JDoe
What operating system hosts the shares, is it a server or an XP machine (home or pro)? Do you you have access to check the share and security permissions?
