this is what i have for a public share, also not secure but it works for me:

[public]
comment = Public Stuff
path = /home/samba
public = yes
writable = yes
read only = no
printable = no

so from just typing that, i see you dont have a "read only = no" try adding it just to see if it changes anything.

i would make:
encrypt passwords = no

AND add in Global:

guest account = ftp

OR some other user would work.

It may not be a problem with your smb.conf file. Look at the permissions for /share and /share/music. Also check out ownership. I think both directories should be owned by root.

It's writeable, and like chris said I believe its the permissions on that directory that is causing the problem.
