I recently bought a new WD TV Live Plus HD Media and when I try to use my network shares I keep receiving this error all the time, it is very frustating. My unit is updated to the latest firmware, so I don’t know it is a problem with the new firmaware ( I don’t know how to downgrade). BTW, I want to clarify that I have read many post about the same error but with no solutions at all. Seems that WD stopped support for Windows XP OS, since I don’t see nothing about it in the version history of the firmwares.
I am running Windows XP PRO in my laptop via wireless and the WDTV Live Plus is wired connected to my router, I just want to stream a video from my laptop(wireless) to the WD TV Live Plus (wired) so i can watch it on my TV. The unit detects my network shares and the Laptop but when it tries to connect asks me for a password; pass or not (anonymous), I still recieved the error message “There is no media in the current folder”.
I have no firewalls or antivirus, my XP Pro is a fresh copy and my user windows have a pass but it didn’t work, I also created a guest account with full control to everyone to not avail.
My question is what’s next? How can I solve this problem? thanks in advance.
