View Full Version : Xbox 360s Can't Access Windows Home Server Content

Within the last couple of weeks, both of my Xbox 360s have been unable to access the music/video/photo content stored on my Windows Home Server (WHS) machine.

Previously they have both been able to quite happily so not sure what's happened to change things. Interestingly both of the Xbox 360s can access digital media content on my Vista Home Premium PC just fine so not sure what's going on?!

Borrowed a mate's DMA device (MediaGate MG350HD) and it can find the WHS box and access it quite happily so not sure what's going on.
Suspect it may be a router configuration issue.

I have a D-Link DIR635 Rangebooster 650 (draft N) router
Media Sharing is enabled in the WHS console settings
Windows firewall is turned off

Thanks in Advance

It's a retail install which is fully patched - I can access the files on the WHS box from my other PCs (as well as my mate's MG-350HD Mediagate) but not at all from my Xbox 360s!!

Very strange ....
