Windows 7: updating libraries issue with xbox extender

updating libraries issue with xbox extender

Hi all, i'm new to these forums. I've searched for this problem here but couldn't find any answers, so i apologise if this issue has been covered before in another thread. I have two xbox 360's in my house which i use mainly as media centre extenders with a Windows 7 Ultimate pc. From the xboxes, when i enter into either Movies, Videos or Pictures I get the message "Updating Libraries - You can wait while media is added or select OK to continue using Windows Media Center - Searching for files". From this point onwards the xbox seems to hang and the only way out is to restart the xbox. When i enter into these libraries from the Windows 7 box itself I don't have any issues. I recently did a clean up of my hard drives and moved the physical location of my vids, music etc onto a different drive. I subsequently went into Tasks/Settings/Media libraries and reflected the changes for the new locations of my media. It has been ever since then I have experienced this issue.

Has anybody else had this problem or know of a solution?

Hey kano650, i have a similar problem, but i can add to that. I have four (4) Linksys Extenders (DMA 2100/2200) and two (2) Xbox's. On all four extenders, i can not get the Pictures and Music Library to connect to my HP Mediaserver (where everything is stored and duplicated). One of my Xbox's will display everything, including the Music and Pictures from the Mediaserver???? I just bought my daughter a brand new Xbox and it is exhibiting the same problem as the extenders. I think i have tried everything. Oh yea, my HTPC that all of the extenders and Xbox's are connected to will display everything!

I'm getting a bit desperate...Anybody have ANY ideas?

If it helps, yes. Everything worked perfectly before November, when strange things started to happen. All of the extenders and the Xbox worked fantastic for two years!

Hey mate, i managed to fix my problem the other day. I'm not sure if it'll be of any help to you, hopefully it is. Firstly I went into Devices and Printers and deleted both extenders, then i went into media centre/tasks/libraries and removed all my media libraries. Then i recreated my libraries (i made sure to wait until they'd updated completely), then i re-added the extenders. After that it works fine
