Unable to access Samba folder from Windows (Using Raspberry Pi XMBC as a Samba Server)

That may depend on the directory and file rights. If the us who runs smb have no access rights, you can't read or write files. You can find out file permissions with ls -la you will also see owner and owner group. You can try to set read and write permissions for all (chmod 777 directory -R). If this was the problem, then you should give read and write permissions only to the user that runs smb. Set permissions for all back to 0 (770) because of security reasons.

Here you find a tutorial on set up samba for Rasapberry Pi.
