It looks like you're forcing Samba to use the "administrator" user and
"nobody" group when a valid login is presented and this share is accessed.
Since the "nobody" group does not have write permissions on your share, your
authenticated user does not have write permissions.  Try changing "force
group" from "nobody" to "users" or simply removing the line (which might or
might not work - I'm not sure).
