Did you try Alt-F2 gksudo nautilus and then use that screen to change
the permissions? That gives you super-user rights meaning you should
be able to change permissions on any files on the sytem at all.  You
can select all the files in the directory first.

Another thing that has occurred to me is whether the folder is
viewable/browseable.  To ensure it is, browse the parent folder (i.e.
the one the folder you're sharing is in) and right-click to change the
permissions on that folder.  Make sure that the settings are the same
on the folder (i.e. group read, others read).

Yup but only if the method above (using nautilus) doesn't work.  Start
a terminal and then type the following, replacing
"/your/shared_directory" with the path to your directory.

cd /your/shared_directory
sudo chmod -R o+r *

The second line (provided by Eamonn) will do all the directories &

Good luck,
