USB NAS Read only file sharing problem

    I have my usb hdd connected and file sharing i setup. It works fine except that, when i share a folder and set it to read only access i can see it in the file sharing but i cannot access it at all. If i change it to read/write access i can access it without a problem.

    This only became a problem after i formatted the drive to ext3, it was an ntfs format before and this was not an issue.

    I am sharing with a bunch of my friends and want to have my shared movie folders set to read only so that no one deletes/renames/pastes anything there. I have a "dropbox" shared folder that i have set a read/write and everyone can put new files there and i will put them into appropriate folders myself via ftp.

    Anyone have any thoughts or ideas to fix this? Do i need to change the ext3 permissions?
