Can not explore network folder

    I have just purchased a new laptop with Vista installed. I have successfully
    connected it to my home wireless network for Internet access. I am trying to
    access a shared folder on a Windows XP PC also connected to the network. The
    shared folder contains music files, pictures and MS Word documents.
    My problem is: Windows Vista finds the shared folder but identifies it as a
    "Media Device" and I can not access the files either directly or with MS Word.
    Can I stop Vista from identifying the folder as a "Media Device"?
