Can you post your smb.conf, as this could be many issues. Also, could you post your samba logs? i find this logging config puts all the data nicely into one file (as it could be client or server side issues)
log level = 1
log file = /var/log/samba/samba.log
max log size = 50
syslog = 0
Make sure you touch the file first and set it as writable.
