I have tried renaming video files on a network drive, when WDTVLive gets turned back on, the old filenames appear...

How do I change the displayed name of the (in this case it's a Video) file?


I am assuming WDTVLive is displaying the actual filename and not some obscure metadata.

Here is my system:


WDTVLive - Wired connection - Dlink DIR628 - Wired connection - Home PC (Vista 32) - USB connection - External Hardrive


PS I tried searching for similar posts and found none, any help or links appreciated.

If you navigate out of the share and then reconnect the name of the file will be updated. In addition any new files that you've added to the share will now appear.
