Maybe you didn't set the host to be public and the other computer as an administrator...

try using dos and 'ping' the drive e( >ping E:) do you get a response? if not electrical fault
try using the same user ID and password on both machines.
check and see if the Drive E is NOT read only
If the drive E: is in heavy use it may also give the response you are getting. If so reduce the number of open files on E:

no, you have to add at least read permissions to that drive, is not good to share all the drive, i encourage you to share just a folder, then press the alt key to show the menu bar and go to tools then select folder options, in the view tab unchek the sharing wizard, click apply and accept, next go to the folder you want share then right click on the folder and go to properties, select the advanced sharing option give a name to the share then in permission you select the users you want give access, you can select if you want only to read, or to read, modify and execute options, is more better to only give read option click apply and accept, your share is now visible and available over your network.
