Alright, I consider myself tech savvy, but cannot get the windows sharing to work for some reason. I created a user "xbmc" with password on my local computer, and allowed for sharing on the directory that has music videos.
When going through menu options on XBMC, it prompts me for the username and password. I enter "xbmc" and the password, but this does not connect.
I tried reading the XBMC forums for setting up network share, but still no luck... what am I missing?
Thanks in advance!

Ok heres how to sort it.
Need to turn off password in media sharing options then when you click on a file you want to share right click properties>Advanced Sharing>tick share this folder>Permissions>tick full control>Apply.
That should sort the problem.
Ifd you cant get on to your network power down atv2 then it should show your network.
