WDTV only access to server and not shared folder

Hi all,

it is a long time I have this problem.

This is my configuration:

1 pc windows seven

1 pc windows xp

wdtv

popcorn hour

NAS

 

I have wired network connection and all devices are connected to the same workgroup.

 

From popcorn I am able to use the NAS server and shared folders from both PCs

From wdtv I am able to use Nas server but not the shared folders.

 

When I click on server I see the servers list (NAS in my configuration)

When I click on shared nothing happens, It doesn't show me the list of pc, nothing. It remains on shared icon.

 

I saw all the previous suggestions but nothing changed.

 

Please help.

Thanks

Re: WDTV only access to server and not shared folder

Based on what you said you can access your files from Media Servers but not using Network Shares.  You can try updating your WD TV to its latest firmware and verify that your folders are properlys shared:

If this does not fix the issue you may contact WD for a replacement, since you can use your Popcorn to access your networks shares.

Re: WDTV only access to server and not shared folder

Update:

I tested a new htpc having xbmc and it is able to see shared folders too.

So only wdtv is not able to see them
