Your 'samba' password and your windows password MUST be the same to
allow you to connect to a Samba share from a Windows machine without
being prompted for a password. I do not understand why, after being
prompted for the correct username & password, that it doesn't connect,
I feel this must be something to do with Windows rather than Samba.

It might help if you shared your smb.conf and told us if your windows
machines are part of a domain or a workgroup.
