Samba Mount - copied files are empty

The problem I'm having is simple enough to explain, but I'm not sure how to fix it for whatever reason. Here at college there are a couple of shares each student has, on windows machines they are the K: and Q: drives. I have the network paths for them and added them to my fstab, and can mount them just fine. However, when I try to copy any files off of either drive, the file that ends up on my hard drive is always empty. Strange!

Here are the relevant lines from my fstab:

//myfiles/classfiles   /mnt/Q      smbfs       user,username=mh1252,password=(edited) 0   0
//myfiles/home        /mnt/K       smbfs       user,username=mh1252,password=(edited) 0   0
I don't receive any error messages when mounting or when copying the no clue there. Any ideas? Thanks for reading!
