Hi, my WDTV Live can see my Windows 7 PC (named Direwolf) just fine under network shares, however, the Users folder is the only thing visible. I have an internal HDD (named Starfall) that I shared, which contains all my media, but doesn’t show up. The workgroup name is the same for all entities involved. I included a couple relevant screenshots for reference. Any suggestions?
Starfall is seen under network shares
The “new view” command also sees Starfall as shared.
My bad, should’ve posted in that thread to start…maybe a mod can move my posts to that thread and close this one. Anyway, after trying numerous things, I came across the Youtube vid below and it fixed my issue, as I can now see my shared folders. I simply had to create a new user account (with password, though not sure if the pass is ultimately necessary), and share my folders with that user.
Prior to this, I used Serviio as a workaround, and it did the trick, but this solution is better IMO. Now I finally get to play around with this new device =)
Its not really a problem with wdtv but with windows shares they are very forgetful. I was having this problem for a long time also every time I thought I fixed it within a day or 2 I had to research the network for shared folders. I did everything I could find to fix it in the end found it easier to work just get a NAS drive I bought a wd 3tb mycloud and shares are perfect if you can afford it I recommend a NAS drive
Thanks, I’ll keep that in mind.
