Accessing media files on WHS through Linksys DMA2200 Media Centre Extender RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Sorry if this is not the right place to ask this question. 

    I have a WHS that stores all my media files, then I have a Vista Ultimate machine with Media Centre, connected to the Media Centre is a Linksys DMA2200 Media Centre Extender.

    My problem is this, the Media Centre Extender can see shares on the WHS (guest account enabled with no password) but cannot add the files to the extender library all with the exception to a share containing photos. When I select the shares to add a bar comes up saying it is adding files but it goes up to 100% but with 0 files found.

    The Media Centre can see the shares on WHS, has added the files to the library and can play the files.

    Could anyone shed any light on this, could it be permissions on the files?

  • Hi All,

    Sorry for my stupidity, I answered my own question, checked the NTFS permissions, copied from the folder that works and hey presto all files show up in the Media Centre Extender

    Thanks to all that may have read my question
