Unable to write to a Windows Share volume

I am trying to access the share and printer on my windows machine. I first attempted to access the windows share through the MCC, but it did not appeared when I search for shares, even after I have modify the firewall to allow Window share (I only see localhost).

I installed smb4k and was able to mount the windows volume after I enter the correct user name and password. However, I am still unable to write to the volume. Whenever I try to write to the shared volume, I get access denied and that I do not have write permission.

What steps am I missing here?

You should be fine after that.
