I cannot seem to share USB drives, or their folders. I can share folders on the internal HDD just fine. I can connect to the computer and see the volumes I am trying to share but when I go to open them I get an error message about not having permissions or that the path maybe wrong. I have an external 1TB drive that I am trying to share, I use to share it through I Windows Vista computer but we upgraded to an iMac. I am not sure if this has any thing to do with it but in the Sharing Preferneces when I select the drive under Shared Folders, the Users "Read & Write" option are grayed out. An ideas on how to set this up properly?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
