I’ve had nonstop problems with the SMP for over a month now since i brought it as a birthday present for my dad.
Basically it constantly gives me errors like invalid login details, unable to connect to share, no media in the folder and a lot more.
It worked reasonable well (aside from a little messing around required to get it to work) for the first week we had it, but it’s become increasingly worse.
What i’ve tried:
-Renaming all the computers on the network to lowercase single words less than 8 characters
-Disabling of all firewalls and passwords on all the computers in my house
-Resetting the SMP to factory defaults
-Resetting the router to factory defaults
I have 3 main computers which have shares on them. 2 WinXP and 1 Win7. After countless hours of troubleshooting and various fixes found on the forums, this is what my problem is currently:
When i try to connect to:
Windows XP (sisters): Invalid username or password error
Windows 7: No media in folder
Windows XP (mothers): Has the exact same settings and operating system (might be a little out of date) as the top one (my sisters) and displays the movie fine (the same movie as what i have on the Windows 7)
This all used to work reasonably well, and all my computers can connect to eachother without a problem.
I plan on returning it asap, i just wanted to know if i should ask for store credit instead of a replacement.
