I think valid users overrides your guest ok parameter. I'd set writeable
to no and use "write list = @ovatedev" instead of valid users. I'd also
suggest force group = +ovatedev. Then all users who can authenticate
against your samba server should be able to read from the clients share,
but only ovatedev members can write to it.
Doesn't explain your guest account problem though. Have you reset your
guest smbpasswd making sure it's the same as your Windows guest password?
