Streaming problem with windows7

i have a WD media player connected to a PC via a router/switch and hard wired. my WD network settings test fine and my laptop sharing seems to be setup. however theWD player cannot see the laptop as a media server. any help would be greatly appreciated

Are you able to access the computer through Network Shares instead of Media Servers?
