I have read loads of posts in this forum, so I apologise for going over old ground, but I feel like I have tried everything and I’m still stuck getting my WD TV box to connect to my network share. If anyone feels able to offer advice I would realy appreciate it.
I am running VISTA on a pc which has a wireless connection to the internet.
I have an external drive on which I can see loads of movies and pictures when viewed from the pc.
I have right clicked on the external drive in my computer and selected ‘Share’
In the share tab I have clicked on advanced and selected a new share and called it WORKGROUP
In the network and sharing centre I have renamed my network WORKGROUP
I have also put, Network Discovery to ON, File Sharing to ON, Media Sharing to ON and Password Protection to OFF.
If I dissconnect the external drive and plug it into the WDTV box it sees the files just fine.
The connection on the WDTV box gets 3 green ticks and connection is no problem because the bbc iplayer etc work just fine.
This is driving me nuts. I don;t know what else I can do. I really hope someone out there is able to help me with this.
Thanks for reading
