Martin, following line in your smb.conf should solve this problem:

encrypt passwords = yes

This is because newer Windows releases refuse to send unencrypted passwords
by default. You could tweak Windows to enable unencrypted passwords, but I
prefer enabling encrypted passwords in samba instead.

Have a look at /usr/local/share/doc/samba/htmldocs/ENCRYPTION.html for
more details.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
