WD TV Live trying to connect to Laptop

Bit of a new error here. I have transferred some videos from my computer onto my hard drvie which I then connect to the WD TV Live.

On opening up videos on the WD TV Live it says ‘Connect to (laptop name)’ and is asking for a username and password. No idea why it is doing this. 

The laptop is running Windows 8. I have tried my laptop log in and password but didin’t work. 

I don’t want it to connect to my laptop, I just want to watch my videos. Any ideas?

When you press the red button can’t you select a local media source?
