    OK. Quick and dirty.

    <> Mac OSX 10.5.1
    <> Linksys WRT600N router, NAS drive attached.
    <> 200GB Maxtor Drive
    <> MacBook Ultimate, Wired 1GB
    <> Using admin user

    I connect by opening finder, Connect to server. SMB://<ipaddress>

    A default share is created, the folder exists. I enter as registered user, and supply admin user and password. The share connects. I can read files, I can delete files, I can create a folder which disappears immediately until I disconnect and reconnect.

    I cannot copy files to the share. It tells me the file contains one or more items for which I don't have permissions.

    I have reformatted, rebooted, etc, etc. I am able to connect the drive directly to my Mac and no issues.

    I can connect to the share using a windows pc, same user and password with zero issues at all... copy, delete, rename... no problem.

    Am I missing something?

    When I say Windows PC, I mean Windows XP running in parallels on the same mac that has the issue.

    The only thing I can think of is this: Are your Mac and the NAS drive set to the same Windows workgroup? Macs default to WORKGROUP, while Windows defaults to MSHOME.

    Sorry I left that piece out.

    The workgroup under OSX is et to workgroup, WINS servers are empty. The NAS device host and workgroup are "nas200G" and "workgroup" respectively.
