"ok guys here is the answer.

the problem was NTML response was not setup on both sides. I had to setup following on both xp and wind7 and a restart did the trick.

Windows Settings. Expand “Local Policies” and select “Security Options”
Alternate : Type secpol.msc to get editor up then
Locate “Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level” in the list and double-click it.
Change the setting from “Send NTMLv2 response only” to “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session if negotiated”"

"It might be helpful to also know the exact cause, before you pick one of these solutions. I recently had this same issue while trying to synchronize files from a Windows 2003 Server to a Windows 7 workstation. At random, the server would lose its connection to the Win7 box, and attempting a NET USE command to map a drive would return a Status 58 like this.

Rebooting the Win7 box would fix it, but this seemed drastic. Looking deeper with Wireshark, we found that an SMB request was going to the Win7 box, and an SMB reply ""Out Of Memory"" was being returned. Stopping and restarting the Server service on the Win7 box resolved the problem, at least temporarily, and is much better and faster than a reboot. I expect that the registry changes for the large system cache will resolve it completely, but these changes may not be suitable to a permanent change, just to get past a temporary issue."

I encountered same issue recently while trying to access a windows 7 share from windows xp sp2. I could reach other shares on windows vista and xp but no windows 7 even though I was able to see it i couldn't access it. After much troubleshooting I found that the windows 7 system belonged to a Homegroup. Once I removed (or left) the the Windows 7 system from the Homegroup I was then able to access the share with the proper credentials. Hope this helps anyone else that may encounter similar issue.

"For me it was that SMB was disabled. 
I ran these commands in Command Prompt with elevated rights:

sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/mrxsmb20/nsi
sc.exe config mrxsmb10 start= auto"
