I have samba installed on a centos 6.2 with a shared drive. I can see it from my windows machine but I can't seem to write to from my windows machine and I have also tried it on my Mac book pro.

Can someone help me out with this. It is driving me crazy.

i don't mess with samba much but what is the file system on the share? i don't know if windows or macOSx can read or write to linux filesystems(at least without additional software?). if you find that that is the case you could put the share on one of those two and linux could still read and write to it regardless of the filesystem. assuming windows and apple do have the ability to read and write to the filesystem in question you may just need to change the permissions on the shared folder. you could also verify the share as working with another linux pc or a linux live usb with some persistent space so you can install samba client if it doesn't come preinstalled.
