Unable to open WDLIVETV from windows 7 and unable to open shared folder from WDTVLIVE


#1

Hi all, it is some days that my wd discovery doesn’t reach the wdtvlive box. I’m able to ping the IP with success and also to ping the name (WDLIVETV), but if I try to open the wdtvlive it say that network path (\WDTVLIVE) is not found.

Any ideas ? My O.S. is Windows 7 ultimate.

From WDTVLIVE i’m able to see my multimedia catalog but I can’t see my shared folder. If I click, for exemple, on network share under music nothing happens.

Thanks

Bye

You guys try following this guide:

Setting up network shares Win7:  http://tinyurl.com/ykywtwo

Make sure you go to your home group settings and make all the changes.  If it still doesn’t work, it might be your firewall in your router/software firewall…try disabling them and see what happens.

If you try to access your network shares and the WD TV Live wants a user name and pass and when you hit ok it says invalid user name and pass. uninstall Windows Live ID Assistant like I had to and numerous other people:
