Hehe, maybe tjhat's cos it didn't make sense!!!

Okay i have never used the shared folders in gutsy, but i have used
samba shares (configured in text mode) so i might have some insight.
First of all, i am somewhat surprised that "nothing" happened... no
error messages?

Maybe if you pop into the terminal and chown ownership of the shared
folder you may have more luck...

In the terminal "chown -R javad:javad myshare" where myshare is the
folder, err obviously.

Secondly, you may need to check your samba configuration for that folder
to make sure you have write access. I cant help you with that as i dont
know what the GUI looks like.

Maybe we can take it forward from there... 
If no luck, please elaborate on the problem.
