This is a weird scenario. I set everything up, created my share and set permissions. Browsing the share from my Windows 7 desktop, I can access the share but cannot copy anything from windows to the share, I get permission denied. Is there some obvious step I missed or something?
Thanks for the response.
ls -al /media

Is this one
Is there the shared folder or you're sharing the whole root drive?
ls -la /media/759c01bb-d0c4-4b24-b928-c0befcb0d27a

Yes, media. I'm trying to use with Plex and want to use the share as a mapped drive to copy all of my media over to it.
root@media:~# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf

Do this. Disable the guest access. Next time you try and access from Windows you should be prompted for a login hopefully. Enter the "media" login credentials.
Yep, that did it! Sweetness! Thanks!
So here's another question...is there a way to set it up so anyone can write to the dir without requiring a username/password? Shouldn't guest allow for that?
