I have an 80gb hard drive which i am trying to setup as a little 'dumping ground'.
I am able to copy files from my Windows Computers onto it, but once they are on the files cannot be read - it says i do not have access. I have tried opening .rar files and they say the file cannot be opened, and i have tried watching .wmv files and they say i have no access.. I have chmod'ed the network directory where it is mounted to 777, and i have setup Samba so that read/write access is enabled.
I am not sure what to do next, how can i let Windows computers access/stream files on my linux server?
