XP to Vista Mapping does not recognize username or password

I need to transfer 30 GB of files from a XP machine to a vista machine. I tried to do it over a network. I can ping my vista machine from XP, I've disabled the firewall. When i map the network drive from my XP to Vista, it recognizes the computer and replace the ip address with computer name, i use my admin user account UN and PWD for credentials but it does not accept them. Its driving me nuts. Any hints? I've turned on sharing in Vista's C$ drive, and everything else, it just does not like my UN and pwd.
