It's under Control Panel > Win/Mac/NFS > Windows File service.
Windows File service Should be enabled (your problem sounds like it isn't ?).

See screenshot below, I discovered the "Client for Microsoft Networks" was not installed on my Windows 7 LAN Properties, so make sure to check this if you have similar problems.
