Yeah, it seems there are eleventy billion threads about issues like these, but none seem to have helped as they mostly seem to be concerned with username/password problems.
I have gone through all this with WD support and replaced my original unit once already and I am at the end of my rope over this one.
Basically what is happening is: When I select ‘Network Shares’ for any media type, nothing happens at all it just sits there and does nothing at all, at first I thought this was a shared folders issue, but as others can get further than me I would imagine this is some kind of issue with my PC not showing up on the device? Or should I get SOME response at all when i press the shares function?
I am using Windows 7 64bit, and trying to share from both my local pc hard drive and a USB drive attached also.
The shares I have always had are accessible from other pcs,macs, xbmc etc witrhout any issues whatsoever and shared to EVERYONE via share with specific people.
I have Homegroups turned off as suggested by WD support staff and have tried with media sharing on/off. Also tried local guest black passwords disabled in admin settings just in case. None of this seems to have given me any joy.
The first unit I had i did both firmware upgrades to the latest and this one I have not done any just to see if it made a difference.
Currently my sharing settings on Home network are:
Network Discovery ON
File Sharing ON
Pub Folder Sharing ON
Media Streaming ON
Password protected sharing off
Windows manage connections
Any help with this would be hot as I am getting real sick of this seemingly simple issue real fast.
