I think you have a lot of global and share options mixed together. It looks kinda messy. But for the datadrive share try adding Browsable = Yes and Writeable = Yes options.

Still the same problem... I can see and take files from the server, I just can't write to the server. Any other ideas? Here's my new smb config.

Thanks... Dennis
