windows media connect is not updating files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed windows home server many months ago now.  I copied some video files and created several directories at this time.  I then started the media sharing on the server couple days later. All those directories and files play and are viewable by both my ps3 and win 7 64 machine.

    I then over time have added directories and videos within those same directories but none of them appear if i connect through the windows media connection.

    If i connect through another dlna server hosted by the whs eg: ps3 media server, i can sell all the files.


    It seems like whs is not updating the windows media sharing library.  Is this a known issue and is it fixable?

  • I have tried turning off and on media sharing but this does not update the library either.   Some files have been in the directories now for at least 5 months and have not moved for that time.

  • Are your files of types supported by Windows Media Connect 2.0 and your devices? If not, they generally won't appear.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
