Someone who knows a solution to this problem?

Your issues could be due to a security setting.On the Vista machine Click on start and in the search box type cmd.Right Click on cmd and select Run as Administrator.Type"secpol.msc".Click on "Local Policies"> "Security Options".Scroll down to"Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level" and open it.By default Windows Vista sets the policy to "NTVLM2 responses only". Change this to "LM and NTLM – use NTLMV2 session security if negotiated".

Are you running any antivirus/firewall solutions (other than Windows Defender, Windows Firewall, etc.) which might interfere with your network access? There are lot of known issues with these kind of products, so you might want to try temporarily shutting them
down or even completely uninstalling them.
You might verify that you have the proper definitions setup to access the device through those programs.
If you are not certain, you may want to boot into a clean boot state and then try to access the device.
Here is an article for clean boot. Follow step one-although it's for Vista it is the same procedure-then verify whether you are able to access.
