It would help if you gave us the exact error message.  Sometimes a few
hundred more eyes can find things that you missed.

When you say "made no difference", I'm assuming that the problem is
that you get no prompt for authentication and are given the file
directly?  And this is true even trying from a different computer (to
eliminate possible caching problems)?

Try putting "Deny from all" in that directory block to see if that has
an effect.  If it doesn't, you are most likely either 1) using the
wrong directory; 2) looking at the wrong config file; or 3) not
reaching the server from the client because of some caching issue.
