    The Error messadge 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot share path /media/I as we are restricted to only sharing directories we own.
    Ask the administrator to add the line "usershare owner only = False"
    to the [global] section of the smb.conf to allow this.

    *edit* I just noticed your post right before mine. You can't share /media/. That would share every drive you have in your computer
