WDTV Live and Mac streaming


I have a 4TB Hdd attached to my mac via Firewire.

I have shared it on the mac and enabled SMB sharing,.

I can see it on the windows shares and then it asks me for a username and password.  I provide this and then it thinks about it then says.

Cannot access media please ensure files.folders are online and accessible?

Any ideas?

I have been reading the forums some people said use annoymous and no password but that doesnt work.

Do i need to add the everybody group to the folders to do this?

You may try adding Everyone to the permissions.  If the issue persists you may try sharing the drive connected to another computer, if available, to compare results.
