Hey guys, new here and have done a ton of forum reading over the last couple of days trying to figure this out but can’t seem to find a solution.
Long story short, I bought a WDTV live streaming a few weeks ago, set it up at home (Windows 8.1 on my laptop) and it worked great, can see the USB HDD as a network drive, can manage files easily… LOVE it.
My sister went and bought one on my recommendation and I set it up for her, the USB HDD (WD MyBook 3Tb) that is attached to the WDTV can be seen by the WDTV and movies play off of it. But with her Windows 7 laptop I am unable to see the HDD, I can see the WDTV on the network but can’t access the HDD.
I have tried the network shares setup that seems to be everywhere but this is the opposite problem. I don’t want the movies to be streamed off of the laptop to the WDTV.
attaching the HDD to the computer is not really an option (laptop), and my brother in law is not the sharpest knife in the drawer so if I can set it up to be ■■■■■ proof so that he can use it easily it would be that much better.
Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
