Can't map network drive

ComputerA is cabled to a router for internet feed and the
router is connected to a wireless access point which is
connected to wireless computerB. Both computers run XP SP2.

ComputerA can access ComputerB C$ but ComputerB cannot
access ComputerA C$. A computerB attempt to Map Network
Drive fails with "Access is denied," as does command-line
net use... . Both computers access the internet and
computerB can print to a computerA printer.

The computers use the same account name and password; both
are administrators. For printer and file sharing NetBEUI
protocol is used. Software firewall is disabled. Simple file
sharing is enabled. No NTFS permission has been knowingly
changed.

I've done a lot of web and MSKB searching, including
www.ezlan.net, without being able to find a diagnostic
procedure. Any suggestions?

I disabled Simple File Sharing and the problem disappeared.
No idea why.

Simple File Sharing implies Guest authentication but you are using user
authentication.
