Hi all,
I have recently "upgraded" most of my PCs to Windows 7. Mostly I'm happy but I have had a heck of a job getting file-sharing working on the network. After sorting permissions and security, all seems to be now working okay except for my media player - a Mediagate Mg450HD. It will see the PCs on the network, it will still read shared folders on the XP machine, but will not recognise any shared folder on the Win7 fileserver. I've gone through every setting I can find to no avail. The media player just says that there are no shared folders on the PC. Can anyone help please?
Cheers
andy

You may have to do this (http://gautamlad.com/stuff/mg350hd_windows7/). If it supports XP mode. Doesnt look like this plays nice / works with Windows 7

Thanks Speedy. That's disappointing but saves me looking further. I guess that's why most of the newer media players don't seem to have LAN connections. I think I'll just go back to using the portable drive as a transport medium.
Cheers
