I'm running a little RaspberryPi machine that I wanted to turn into a low power network share that is completely unprotected on my home network, the aim is for it to be a universal network dump and media share.
I have got USB drive mounted and read-writable from linux, the share is visible from my Windows8(64Bit) desktop without username or password, but nothing I have on the network including my W7(64Bit) can get read/write access to the share.

I have been through my system logs and I have not seen anything that corresponds with the permissions messages I get when I try to add or delete a file to the share.
