Actually I got everything working by modding the registry.
Now I have 3 drives, C, D and E. I shared all three, but I can only log on to E.
When trying to access C and D it requires some login and its set as realteak_guest. I tried to delete it, but still says login fail.
Drives C and D are formatted to NTFS, E is FAT32 if that matter.

Are you entering your login information for your PC in the login/pass box?
btw, no need to post your question twice.

There is no login for my PC.
Its listed as MYNAME with no password protection. What I don't understand is why my external hard drives work, (I even connected a flash drive to my USB port and it is shared successfully) but internal drives does not.

Boy, tough to say. Probably something to do with file permissions. Network shares are difficult to nail down exactly why something doesn't work.
I would add a password to the user account and go from there.
You are sharing the full c: drive? Or a folder within? Sharing is enabled on all 3 right? Sorry for all the questions, just narrowing down.

The external drive may share fine as it's permissions allow public access. This may not be the case for your c and d drives, however.
Generally it's not good practice to share the entire c:\ drive, I would stay away from sharing that. Rather, find a location for media, say d:\movies and share that individual folder, see if that work. Though I still think you should have a password for your account, and try to login with that.
Another solution I have seen is to create a new user account (with password) and share folders from there - then have the FAT+ log in to that account.

Where else can I find these permissions? I do try to share specific folders in the drive and it still prompts for a password.
Like if I share C:\Movies it doesn't work, but if I share E:\Movies it works (E being the external HDD).
I've disabled firewalls, done exactly as the tutorial says step by step. I'm pretty savvy with computers as well but just can't figure out why. Maybe I'm thinking of buying another external HDD for media.

I am not clear. Do you have a password? If not, add one. That's the only advice I can give at this point, a null password may not work, but I am not sure. It's worth a quick try.
