hi guys, looking for some help or ideas...
got the wd live hooked up by hardwired internet from my providers router.high speed adsl
running vista...i am sharing the correct folder(the whole c:)
i can get a connection no problem ex: you tube
i can see the folder under media servers.
problem is i keep getting "could not connect to the network" error.
i have firewall disabled, and i retry and retry back to back and sometime get a little further but
in the end i get the problem connecting.
any thoughts?

thnks for all the replys.haha
incase anyone else has this problem i seemed to have found the fix for it...
it turns out i have to actually use the network shares option and not the media server...no idea why, then the next day it is opposite.
I also had to put all my files in the "public folders" or else it wont see anything.
