Please don't use DOS paths. Use POSIX paths like /cygdrive/q instead:
Naturally, I tried all flavours:
$ ls /cygdrive/q/
ls: cannot access /cygdrive/q/: Input/output error
Works fine for me using a Linux Samba share with space in it.
Okay, that leaves the parentheses as the likely troublemaker.
The thing is, people bring in disks, and I have no control over their volume / share names.
Any more ideas? Where's Santa when you need him ;-)
