Mount does not show Samba files

I am having some problems accessing files on a Linux server in Cygwin. 
The files are
exported via Samba. I can see the whole directory using my computer, 
which shows
a Y: directory on machine Goddard. However, "ls /y" prints no such file. 
What am
I doing wrong? This used to work. Transcript below.


[cygwin$:515] net use \\\\goddard\\abiyani y:
The command completed successfully.
[cygwin$:516] ls /y
ls: /y: No such file or directory
[cygwin$:517] mount
C:\win\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode)
C:\win\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode)
\\goddard\abiyani on /y type system (binmode,noexec)
C:\win\cygwin on / type system (binmode)
c: on /c type system (binmode,noumount)
i: on /i type system (binmode,noumount)
s: on /s type system (binmode,noumount)
[cygwin$:518] ls /y
ls: /y: No such file or directory
[cygwin$:519] mount //goddard/abiyani /y
mount: /y: Device or resource busy
