can see but cant read files on windows share, help a newb out!

I am using mandrake 10.1 download and samba 3.0 apperently from my packages signature.

I have samba set up pretty nicely. All of my windows machines can read my linux server without a prolem and read from them.

My linux server though, I can all my windows shares and the files, but if I go to move a stream an mp3 to my linux box it always errors out and says it cant read the file. I had it working well my last install but don't know what I did differently. Help me please as I am running low on cdr-s and money!

hello and welcome to LQ!

check two things, that the permissions are set ok, and that the filename is correct. Is it just one type of file or everything?

I discovered before I went to work that it was only one folder that would do it. I believe the folder wouldnt share because it was a localized subdirectory that windows usually wont allow sharing under with simple shares in XP home. I moved the directory, programs associated with that directory, and files to a place that can be shared and hopefully it will work. I will findout tommorrow morning when I have time.
