Does the server show in finder's "Shared" section"

FYI: I have a test VM. It was 12.04 with out samba installed. I upgraded to 14.04.1 then installed SAMBA using apt-get.
The server showed immediately in finder (OSX 10.9). I was able to navigate directly using finder.
I then added a simple share (using your model, but it's not on a separate disk). Then added user using "smbpasswd -a".
I can write to share without issue. I do use "connect as" in Finder since my mac user is different than SAMBA user.
I suggest try eliminating the Western Digital mount as an issue. Create a simple share by making a new directory inside /mnt
and/or try connecting to the server without specifying a share name. When I browse directly to the server, I can see the "Shares" folder.
I can't connect directly/as guest (The operation can’t be completed because the original item for “shares” can’t be found.) This error occurs because
my usernames don't match and guest access is not granted in samba.
If I add the following to share definition, I can connect as guest.
If I try using a non-existent samba user, password gets rejected immediately... "shaky window response from Finder".
I'm happy to run additional tests.
Here is some info on my setup:
