Checking through previous posts this seems to be a popular problem but unfortunately none of the solutions has worked for me yet.
I have a new WD TV live which I’ve connected to my home hub via a Buffalo wireless adaptor. This all seems to work and I can access the internet fine on my TV. When I try to access files on my computer hard disk though I am requested to enter account name and password - which I don’t have. I have tried clearing this to the pre-set ‘anonymous’ and ‘blank’ but still no luck.
My PC is running Windows XP (SP3) and I have ‘shared’ the folders that I want to access. I assume I have ‘simple file sharing’ set up but when I go to check (Tools-Folder Options-View-Advanced Settings) the option isn’t there.
I also have a Squeezebox Boom on my network and this can access my music folder without any trouble. I suspect my problem is with the computer settings - can anyone make any suggestions?
