Mounting hidden windows share

I'm having problems mounting a hidden share on a windows machine, I'm using:

mount  -t smbfs //*****/****$ /***/*** -o username=****,password=****
And I get the following returned:

ERROR: Badly formed boolean in configuration file: "auto".
Other shares mount fine but this is the only hidden one I have tried. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Escape the '$', like so -- //server/share\$
