The two main machines involved are:

Machine A:  Sony laptop running Windows Vista.
Machine B:  Desktop running Windows XP Pro SP3.

We are trying to get Machine A to access two drives in Machine B.  We have shared both hard drives and Machine A has full access to the C drive in Machine B.  No problem.  Then we shared drive D in Machine B and no joy.  We used the same sharing settings as the C drive, but are still not able to have full access to the D drive in Machine B.  We are getting an error message that says we don't have the proper permission to access the D drive in Machine B.

So you can't even access drive D, from the machine it is on ?

First make sure drive D is NTFS filesystem...
If not,...convert it by typing the following in command line...  convert D: /FS:NTFS
This will not cause data loss.

After doing this...if it was necessary....check you permissions on drive D... and if neccessary "take ownership"...if you do not have the appropriate permissions.  You may have to turn off "simple file sharing"..in order to get access to reset the permissions on the drive. - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307874
