You might not have configured the samba share properly. I suggest reading on the various tutorials online. If not; then it would be best if you can post the samba share clause of your share configured in the smb.conf and someone might just reply back.

The Samba 3.2.x HOWTO and Reference Guide is good, not only about how to set Samba up but also about how to test it.
