I installed Samba and shared some folders to allow access from my Windows 7.
But currently I'm having some issues.

In my smb.conf

path = /usr/bin/MYFOLDER
read only = no
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes

path = /usr/bin/MYVIDEOS
read only = no
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes

For [MYFOLDER], I'm able to access from Windows. But I can't write to it.
For [MYVIDEOS], I can't even access it. Access is denied.

I need to be able to write and access both folders. Anyone knows whats wrong?

Under what user does your samba deamon run? That user has to have access to the folders you are sharing. – André Stannek Feb 14 '13 at 10:24
