As the title says I have a situation where I can’t see my WDTV Live Plus on my Win 7 (ultimate) PC, but the WDTV Live can see the PC and connect and play content from its hard drives.
I have a second WDTV Live (non-Plus) and it is working in both directions as it should.
I have had these things for years and have often had problems with the network always dropping out between the WDTV lives and the PC, but always in the other direction - i.e. the WDTV can’t see the PC, but now I have the reverse. basically the networking on these things is pretty **bleep** I think - but I slog away and restart my computer every few days as the WDTV live has lost the network share with my computer … AGAIN. Despite all this however, I have always been able to connect from my PC to the WDTV Live and whatever HDDs are plugged into it - for years. Now all of a sudden I can’t - I made no changes to firmware or anything like that, just restarted and it was gone. I have checked all setttings in the WD, but they are all fine (as you would expect since I can connect to other computers on my network.
I have searched, but everyone always has the usual problem of the WDTV not seeing their computer and I can’t find anything on the reverse.
