I had a similar problem and it's probably the same thing. Samba3 expects PROPER file permissions. I think Apple's SMB always fudged it or something. Check the directory and files that aren't reading for "Everyone" READ permissions. All the movies and photos that would not display in XBMC properly all somehow got their file permissions set wrong. I selected the entire directory folder and set it to recursive file permission change and set all groups/everyone to READ permissions. I can now view everything just fine. I ran into this problem when I switched my PPC PowerMac server running Leopard over to a new 2012 Mac Mini running Mountain Lion. To be safe, I actually set my entire 3TB media drive to recursive set all media files to have the Everyone setting set to READ. No more issues (other than Mavericks wanting to switch back to Apple's SMB when I reboot; I have to turn it back off in preferences and start the SMBUp server again).
