Remember to enable your MAC for SMB sharing. This is done by going into
Sys Prefs-->Sharing-->File Sharing (MAKE SURE IT IS SELECTED or GREYED OUT)--->
Options--->(Then Check Box) Account (On)--->Done
It should work then using your usual NAME and PASS that is used for all things, not the computer name. In other words, use your "Login Credentials"

If you created your account using a Microsoft Online account, make sure to use your *EMAIL ADDRESS* (the one you use for your Microsoft Online account) when OSX asks you what your "Name" is upon connecting to the shared drive. Password is your Microsoft Online password.
