Unable to access/edit LAN Hard Drive Folder

#1
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION:
Linksys/T-Mobile Hot Spot (wireless) ROUTER with Ethernet connections to 1) Home Phone, 2) iMAC PowerPC/OS X Leopard, 3) PC/Windows 7 32bit and 4) IOMEGA HOME MEDIA NETWORK HARD DRIVE (herein "NHD").

PERTINENT SYSTEM STATUS:
The NHD contains 1) a "BACKUPS" folder with sub-folders containing scheduled & unscheduled backups and system images from both computers and 2) specific folders e.g. MOVIES.

THE PROBLEM:
Upon attempting to open the "BACKUPS" folder on the NHD from the PC, a WINDOWS SECURITY panel opens 1) requesting a user name and NETWORK password to the NHD, 2) listing the PC name as a DOMAIN name and 3) a red "X" - Access Denied.

CONFLICTS & FACTS:
1) As User/Administrator, I have not set any "folder" security/passwords, 2) I can open, view, edit and delete any of the other folders on the NHD from the PC and can open, view, edit and delete ALL folders from the iMAC , 3) I have NO domain setup, only a WORK GROUP name, 4) Network access protection is OFF.

UPON SELECTING "BACKUPS" FOLDER PROPERTIES ON THE PC:
General Tab: ♦File Type > Share
Network Tab: ♦Computer Name > the NHD ?? ♦Computer Type > Windows NT 4.9 Server ??
♦Work Group > "WORKGROUP" (Control Panel System Info shows true Name)
Security Tab: ♦Object Name > \\Iomega-....\Backups
"You do not have permission to view or edit this object's permission settings."
Previous Versions Tab: None

PLEASE HELP! THE ABOVE PROBLEM BEGAN RECENTLY AND UNEXPECTENTLY! :(
