Have you installed Samba Server? Samba and Samba server are a little different. Samba will let you view material on windows computers. Samba server lets windows see stuff on your Linux machine. Additionally Once Samba Server is installed and configured it should show up in the list of network computers available on your network.

No Check to make sure you have installed the samba server package.
