Windows 7: Windows 7 Destination Folder access denied

Windows 7 Destination Folder access denied

So here's the scenario.

i have a media server set up where i store all my media files so they are shared with my household.

The problem is that when i try and do anything in the shared folder (mapped as a network drive) i get a "destination folder access denied: you need permission to perform this action).
All OS's is Windows 7 Pro.

Heres the setup.

single shared(called Shared) folder with subfolders where the administrator group is owner and the user credentials i use to log on the mapped network drive with are member of the administrator group. every member of the household have a different username.

i have tried disabling UAC, adding the user directly to the folder with full permissions and still no dice.

Am i missing something? i am able to play the media files but if i want to edit a file or make a new folder i get the access denied error.


Kind Regards
