    In Finder choose Connect to Server and enter the Unicode name, like this:

    smb://MyComp


    Mac <> Windows communication goes through Server Message Blocks, so you have to prepend the protocol before the computer.

    I assume that since the computer shows the shares sometimes, that you are on the same workgroup, etc.
