Windows 7: Unable to access simple shared folders on streaming client

Unable to access simple shared folders on streaming client

Hey guys

I cant get my streaming client (LG BD390) to show my shared folders on my pc.
It displays my pc, but doesn't attach those shared folders that are supposed to be shared.
If i access my computer from another windows pc there is no problem at all.

I have altered the share configurations every possible way imaginable but nothing will get it to work.

As you can see on the pic ive attached my pc is "ANDREAS-PC" my gf's is "VIBEKE", her pc is displaying her shared with no problem.

The wierd thing about this issue is its only the simple "share this folder" that does'nt work. Because on the pic attached you can see both the "ANDREAS-PC: Andreas" which is the windows media player (if im not mistaken) and the "Nero MediaHome 4".
MediaHome can share whatever i like from my pc, but by doing so it takes endless amount of resources and cannot display subtitles for video files. Thats why i don't wanna use that instead of simple windows folder share.

Things ive tried out:

Altered every single option in the sharing center. like turn on network discovering and such (for public netowrk too)
Reinstalled windows 7
Factory defaults on my router and my LG bd390.

Does anyone have an idea about what could be wrong?

Thanks in advance ppl

This is from newegg reviews.

Rating: 2/5Beware Windows 7 64 Bit Users!

Pros: Blu Ray, Upscaling, Netflix, Media share can use Orb, Windows Sharing or Nero MediaHome. Ripped DVD VOB files can be streamed right to your TV. You can't really navigate too well but the quality is very nice.
Cons: The media sharing has a pretty clunky interface but is otherwise usable. Nero MediaHome CD that comes with this unit is not compatible with 64 Bit operating systems. Neither LG or Nero claim responsibility for this. To resolve this issue you can pay $1.29 a minute for phone support to Nero to have them tell you to buy the full version. The Full version does work (Seems like a scam to get you to spend more.) So if you are willing to pay more for the full version of the Mediahome software then you can get this to work.

You couldn't pay me enough to use Nero. Your A/V software can also cause this problem. You will also need to update the firmware on this disk player. Also if you are using a Dlink router you may need to update the firmware.

You can read through the reviews in the link below. These reviews give good clues on how to fix problems..

Hi, thanks for trying to help me out, but my problem has nothing to do with Nero MediaHome, its with the simple folder sharing feature in windows 7.

Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? its driving me mad

There isn't anything wrong with simple file sharing in Windows 7 although there were many complaints about that bluray player not working right with Win 7 unless you update the firmware.

Ok so the settings in the images ive attached is as they should be?
It just does'nt make any sense, because it has worked before, then from one day to the other it just stopped working...
Tonight i tried connecting another pc with windows 7 with some shares, but it turned out to be the exact same problem.

Maybe it is because ive updated the firmware on the player, because as i said it has worked like a charm like 2 weeks ago.. :/

Problem fixed, allthough it may sound strange.
Solutions is as follows
Uninstall every program associated with "Windows Live Essentials", then restart.
Ths has worked for me and a couple of others with the same problem.
