Unable to connect to my network drives

I’m currently using windows 8, and I have WD tv live plus; lastest firmware.

I check my wd tv live plus is connected to the internet, my computer is also on the same subnet.

I watched a lot of youtube videos and followed them pretty accurately, and I’m unable to connect my network drive to my wd tv live plus media player.

Please advise me on how to connect a shared folder to my media player.

You need to go into the WD Support section, find the user manual for your model player, download and spend time with it.  You need to do a few things to set up sharing, so check it out.
