Ok…so I know that there have been many issues pertaining to Network Shares in the past, but I don’t understand this one.
I have a computer that I call “Multimedia” a Windows 7 PC. After many issues with setups, I finally have my WD Live TV Hub boxes able to see the computer and the external hard drives connected to it. I added folders to my media library and everything works fine. I have the network and sharing option for passwords turned off and no issues with asking for a username and password.
Intermittently, the WD Hub tells me that it can’t play my files…mainly any ISO or MKV files, but it will play the mp4 files no problem. If I reboot the machine, it loses all my network shares and says that I have entered an invalid username and password. I never set one up. I cleared the network share login info and it still doesn’t work. The only thing that gets it to work is if I reboot the Multimedia computer completely. Then the Hub can see everything like it used to and without needed a username and password for the network share. I don’t know what is suddenly causing the issue and I haven’t updated my firmware either, so I don’t get it.
Anyone have any thoughts on how I can prevent this from happening? I don’t want to have to keep rebooting the Multimedia computer each time because it’s a pain in the arse!
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
