OK now im get somewhere thanks dandirk. I can now see a <homes> folder, a <'username'> folder which are both empty and i can open them up. I can also see both my external harrdives but cant open them due to not having permission. any ideas?

Sorry not sure... I am guessing there could be something special with the USB drives, sharing and rights. Pretty much a linux hack, only able to do have is needed to get it to work, don't understand a whole bunch about it.
Please note the smb.conf file I posted is very specific to my setup/needs... Maybe use another share to share your usb drives

Ive decided its not really worth the effort now, transfered a few files to the folders i could access and realised at 1.5MBS it would take longer than it would to connect the HDDs to the main computer via USB, Ahh well. Thanks for the help though.
