Try to clone the [public] section in the /etc/samba/shares file,
in order to write the yours. If it still doesn't work, try to enlarge
the files permissions of the exported directory in MU, using the
command "chmod", for example "chmod 766".
If this doesn't work, try to change the owner
                "chown nobody.root mydir"
