Virtual Machine Windows Host, Ubuntu Guest can't access windows shares in Plex Media Server ONLY

So I created a virtual machine using virtual box for plex and a few other media applications I use because I prefer them on linux. The shares seem to automount just fine from Virtual box and they mount to /media. I am able to terminal into that location and see all of the files in the share just fine. But when I add the share to the Plex media library, nothing shows up. It shows the folder but none of the contents are shown. The windows share is shared to everyone with full access and I have even chmod 777 the folder from within linux but still can't see the files in plex. Any ideas on what I am missing here?
