[ubuntu] Windows 8 doesn't see Samba Shares

http://ubuntuforums.org – So I've been running an ubuntu server for about 6 months now (noob) and I set up a samba share which I used with windows 7 PC's. Once it was set up everything worked fine. Now I have 2 windows 8 PC's and neither of them have my ubuntu server samba share showing up with network discovery. If I use the IP or hostname (\\ubunutu) the shares show up and work properly. I just double checked and my windows 7 machine still automatically discovers the server, but neither windows 8 machine does. What could be my problem? smb.conf Quote: [global] log file = (Hardware)
