Problem Detecting WDTV

Hello All, 

I have been having an issue with my WDTV that I cannot see it appear as a “computer” on my windows 7 machine. I used to be able to recognize the wdtv as a computer and thereby access all the files on the attached hard drive. Something happened a couple of months ago and now it only appears as a media device and i cannot access the attached harddrive. 

Another computer in my house running linux can access the files and on my windows 7 machine the firewall is off and have no idea how to fix this problem please help.

So you’re saying your Linux Box CAN access the WD, but your WIn7 box CANNOT?

I’m suspecting it’s a Master Browser issue.

See if this tutorial for troubleshooting helps:
