How to make samba share writable?

I have set up samba on a raspbian Pi. Everything seems to work as expected except from a real showstopper... I am totally unable to use the samba share as intended because it seems impossible to write to the folder except using sudo on the Pi console. That kinda defeats the purpose of a shared disk!...

Re: Automount USB disk as same samba drive?

Thanks, but it seems like you have to somehow marry together the specific drive (usb thumb or a usb connected hard drive) to a mount inside the pi such that if you connect something other than this specific drive you are back at zero again... I would like it to work like in Windows, i.e. when I plug...

Re: Need to transfer files to remote site using pi VPN

I should add that I have looked at a number of samba tutorials so I know how to set up the service. However, I would like for the Pi to publish whatever disk is inserted into USB as the DATA share, so my daughter can insert whatever disk and it will be accessible afterwards via samba. Is this possib...

PP1 & PP2 = +5VDC directly from the mirco USB PP7 = +5VDC after the fuse. PP3 = Ground (But easier to connect at other places such as metal shields on Ethernet jack etc). THanks!

I removed the quotes around the ssid so the lines now reads:
