I received the WDTV Live for Christmas and have set it up through an ethernet cable (cat 5) and the HDMI port on my TV. The Live has net access (has updated it’s firmware and I can view YouTube). Unfortunately, I can not access the drives on my network. When I go to the Network Shares, my computers are all there (I have 2 desktops, a netbook and a laptop - which are all recognised as being on the network by the Live) but when I go to connect, I get the username and password screen. I login using my windows details (as happens when initially connecting a laptop for the first time) but I get one of two messages. The first message is ‘Invalid Username of Password’, the second message is ‘This media server can not be accessed’. I have created seperate logins for the Live, with Administrator access, I have ensured that sharing permissions are appropriate, I have changed LAN Authentication levels, I have enabled anonymous network access and I have done multiple reboots. My computer recognises that the Live is on the network, and when there is a device attached I can browse through it in Windows Explorer. I can also not access ‘Media Servers’.
I am running Windows Vista Ultimate on my desktop and WIndows 7 on my Laptop.
Can someone please help with my problem? It would be greatly appreciated
