Cannot access/copy some XP files via samba


I have a Fedora Core 7. I generally use the mount.cifs command to mount shared directories from my XP home machine.

However, I find that in some cases, not all, I can see, but not access or copy the files.

If I instead use a FAT USB stick as an intermediate, then I have no problems.

The mounted directory looks like this:

Code:
pwalden@walden4 Karma]$ pwd
/home/pwalden/Music/Delerium/Karma
[pwalden@walden4 Karma]$ ll
total 62808
-rwxrwSrwt 1 pwalden pwalden 5205726 2008-02-09 15:07 01 - Duende.mp3

Are you getting any error messages? What happens when you try to access the files? How are you trying to access the files (command line or through nautilus or something similar)? Is it only files with spaces in the names that you're having problems with?

need more info.

First off, it does not seem to be related to spaces in the filenames. For example here is one that works and another that does not. They both have identical permissions:

Code:
[pwalden@walden4 ~]$ cp /home/pwalden/Music/Holst\ -\ Dutoit/The\ Planets/01\ -\ Mars\,\ the\ Bringer\ of\ War.rmj .

[pwalden@walden4 ~]$[pwalden@walden4 ~]$ cp /home/pwalden/Music/Delerium/Karma/01\ -\ Duende.mp3 .
cp: cannot open `/home/pwalden/Music/Delerium/Karma/01 - Duende.mp3' for reading: Permission denied

[pwalden@walden4 ~]$ ll /home/pwalden/Music/Holst\ -\ Dutoit/The\ Planets/01\ -\ Mars\,\ the\ Bringer\ of\ War.rmj /home/pwalden/Music/Jack\ Wall/Myst\ III-\ Exile/01\ -\ Main\ Theme.mp3
-rwxrwSrwt 1 pwalden pwalden 7299765 2004-07-25 16:23 /home/pwalden/Music/Holst - Dutoit/The Planets/01 - Mars, the Bringer of War.rmj
-rwxrwSrwt 1 pwalden pwalden 3151770 2004-08-05 19:40 /home/pwalden/Music/Jack Wall/Myst III- Exile/01 - Main Theme.mp3
Looking in the F7 system log, there are no errors listed.

Looking on the XP box, event service viewer, there are not applicatication, security or system errors recorded.
