I used to have Windows 7 and it took me a while to get Network Sharing working with my WDTV Live Plus, had to use registry and permission settings, but I got it to work, and it worked fairly well for the past 2 years.
Now I just got a new iMac, and people tell me “Mac’s just work”, but that isn’t the case it seems.
I set up my File Sharing as per this official WD youtube video…
When I turn on my WD TV Live Plus box, it shows my iMac Network Shares but when I try to access I get
“This Network Share Can Not Be Accessed”
I tried anonymous login, I tried with the name of my computer and login, I tried anonymous, I tried automatic, but always get the same result.
I have OS X Mavericks, and I notice the seup is slightly different than in that video. It says “Windows File Sharing” at the bottom instead of SMB sharing which is up at the top.
