Windows 7: WMP 11 and Library sync

04 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
WMP 11 and Library sync

Edit*... I have WMP 12.

Hi all.. New here, my name is John from NY.

So here is my first post.

I have WMP setup to share my "Videos" folder with my xbox 360, not through Windows Media center as an extender because I hate it, I simply have it sharing my folder.

So from my xbox 360, I go to media library, pick my PC and boom there I have it. Well, not always. If it's not in my WMP 11 library it's not there... With Windows XP I never worried about that, I simply shared the folder and that's it, any way to achieve this?

What I am doing now is every time I have a new file I need to open WMP and it syncs up and adds it to the library.....

Cliff notes:
So my goal is to share my files. I would love to this simple and just share a folder where I can reach it through 360 ala basic file sharing in windows XP.

Right now I can see my WMP library, I have to open up WMP to sync which is a pain sometimes as I get ready sit on the couch and get ready to watch my show and then I realize it's not in the library yet...

Sorry for the long post, thanks for taking the time to read
