This was driving me crazy, so I thought I would post the solution.  If "all of a sudden" you start getting this, check to see if you have windows essentials installed, if you do, there is a program that comes with it called "Windows Live ID Signin Assistant".  For whatever reason this program screws up the authentication between the wdtv deevices and a windows share.  All you have to do is remove Windows Live ID Signin Assistant, then do a reboot.  Once back into windows just confirm that the "everyone" group still has at least read access to any/all shares you want your wdtv to be able to see.
Good luck.
