Probably you configured only read access. Check also NTFS permissions for your users/groups and configure it as you need (full control, modify, read, write).
Andrej PirmanCommented:
There are 2 tabs under under properties of your shared folder: SECURITY tab and SHARING tab.
You must set apropriate permissions in both tabs, and resulting permissions are a cross section of both permissions.

is there any user limit on the server for sharing drives?

Andrej PirmanCommented:
User limit:
by default, it is unlimited, but you can limit number of users under SHARING tab.
