When i try to connect from my desktop to my laptop (both 8.04 up 2 date) i can access my shares. In this my external disk. So far so good. When i open my favorite anime Totems says:

An error occurred
Could not read from resource.

Ok well thats bad.. so i decide to try it with vlc:
Basically the error log shows this:

Using netbios name HARM-DESKTOP.
Using workgroup MSHOME.
[00000295] access_smb access error: open failed for 'harm-laptop/lacie/%5BINP%5DOne_Piece_339_SD%5B60E6F2AE%5D.avi' (Permission denied)
Performing aggressive shutdown.

Ok so what THE HELL.. ive added a password for my user with sudo smbpasswd -a harm so that cant be the problem. Here is my testparm:

workgroup = MSHOME
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
obey pam restrictions = Yes
passdb backend = tdbsam
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *passwd:*password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
syslog = 0
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
dns proxy = No
panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
comment = Home Directories
invalid users = root

available = No

path = /media/LACIE
read only = No

Ok so WHAT THE HELL!! my config file looks a bit different my LACIE share should testparm as such:
path = /media/LACIE
browseable = yes
read only = no
writable = yes

So it basically ends up i HAVE to whatch my anime on my laptop.. which is ok but why the f isnt this working like it used to or is supposed to.

Here are pastebins of usefull stuff i suppose
