    Unusual, whenever I plug my MBP into a Win network I see all computers, printers, hard drives.
    Go to System Preferences and select Sharing, after checking everything there, click in the search box in the top right of that window and enter 'Appletalk, check everything.
    Keep trying the search box of the System Preferences pane.
    It WILL work out, at the moment I am unable to do a walk thru for you, sorry.
    Plus it's been a long time since I've had any need to re-check any of my Macs.

    Welcome aboard and enjoy the ride.
