Trying to create Folder in samba with no luck

Looked thru all/most post that I thought might be helpful but got nowhere or possible didnt understand.

Trying to setup a network storage device using a samba gui but wont let me create folder eg: "Lan HD" the response I get is "only English characters or numbers accepted." the device is a Landrive product. I just dont know the protocol of the language i think i have bitten more than i can chew.

My quick guess is the Space. I seem to remember having that problem back when I was toying with Samba, and IIRC, the Space is not normally allowed. However, I don't remember my workaround for enabling Spaces...

Good Luck!
