Here's my fstab line ...
You'll notice the UID and GID options in there. You'ce already got file_mode and dir_mode=0777 which is cool, but using the uid and gid actually can make the mount point owned by you, instead of root. And then file/dir mode 0770 prevents anyone else accessing it.

But the big one for me was the NOUNIX option. Without this, ubuntu would try to negotiate permissions with my NAS. Of course the NAS does not support full samba, only partial samba, hence it would all fail. With NOUNIX it works fine.
Also just a tip - I noticed you put your fstab line in blue. It's probably best to put that between CODE and /CODE tags instead, like I have. Reember to put [ and ] around the CODE and /CODE.
Let us know how the NOUNIX thing goes!
