Im trying to add a ntfs formated drive to my samba share for xbmc, it asks me everytime I try to browse this drive for the account data, when i entered it it asks again, so i cant access this share.
I set the security to share in smb.conf and also this settings for the folder where the drive gets mounted:

comment = div
path = /media
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes
read only = yes
create mask = 0655
directory mask = 0777


I know its because of the permission for that mountfolder, but since its ntfs I cant change them,
so what to do?

Im guessing you have no issues reading the drive from linux(read only of course)??

Can you mount the drive from another pc? Also what is the <path> statement in the xbmc xml?

sure, no problem accessing the data local.
Dont have any other PC here, I have the same problem with folders that dont set to rwx for others.

Perhaps try mounting it with: umask=0

err fmask and dmask=0 or something like that...sorry going from memory.

And then seeing if you can connect, not the most secure way to do it, but may help with testing this. Can you at least connect locally to the share? ie: smb://localhost/share in konquerer or whatever?

You running samba 3.0 or higher?

This is likely a a Linux/Samba issue more so than a XBMC issue.
