There must be some difference, otherwise it would work.

Assuming the username and password are correct, the user you are
connecting as must not have access to this share.  IIRC you need to
grant a user access to both the share and (as you're probably using
NTFS) the folder/filesystem itself.

You could try connecting with smbclient instead, as it will probably
give you slightly more useful information.
