    You should check the security settings.
    • Click Start, enter cmd in the Search box.
    • Right click cmd that appears at the bottom of programs.
    • Click Run as administrator, and click continue
    • In the black window, enter the following command and press the button <ENTER>: Secpol.msc
    • In the Local Security Policy window, expand Local Policies and click Security Options.
    • Right Double click Network security: LAN Manager Authentication Level
    • In the list select "Send LN & NTLM responses"

    Hello and thank you for this answer, I have exactly the same error, my network drive that worked on Vista as inaccessible to me on Windows 7. I performed the operation reported, and restart the PC. However, nothing has changed; I still have the same error. I have followed all the steps as you have given here but as I mentioned that nothing happen to it. Thank you for your help.

    From falling on this topic and after that getting no response, I send you the procedure that works to access an SD network: Check in network, your issue get resolved.
    • Open "computer"
    • In the left window, right click on "Network" then "Network Drive"
    • In the box "Folder", enter the full path to the target directory (\ \ Mondd \ mydir) then click browse, you should see your directory under the name of your DD. Click OK.
    • Give him a letter then finish.
    • You can access via the desktop / laptop to your network dd.

    You can also get solution for this and in that you have to edit the registry. So for this I mean while editing the registry you have to more careful otherwise it will harm your system
    • In this you have to launch regedit from Start Search box.
    • Find the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

    3. And after this you have to create a DWORD key under Lsa and set:
    Name: LmCompatibilityLevel
    Value: 1
    4. Restart.
