Error when connecting to a windows server

I'm having problems connecting to another machine.

Just an hour ago i was able to connect to it thru:-
Connect to Server--->browse network--->windows network then selecting the correct machine.

However, now when i try to connect, i dont get a prompt for my username and password (unlike all the other machines i select) and just get the error:-
The folder contents could not be displayed.

Any ideas?
