Windows 7: share media with devices is not available


04 Jan 2011   #1

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 
share media with devices is not available

I can't figure out what happened either. I was proceeding to play Call of Duty black Ops when I noticed under music and pictures that my USERNAME-PC icon was not there. I went to check and make sure the computer was on, and it was. I was like that is weird. I don't remember deleting my homegroup or anything like that. I rebooted the PC and PS3 and nothing helped. I went into network properties->change homegroup properties, to find out that the share media with devices is not available. It is shaded out and you cannot click on the box to enable it. But, the kicker is, it says that media streaming is turned on. This sucks and I hope Microsoft does something to fix this issue. I loved the fact that I could stream all my music and pictures to my PS3 on my home WIRED network. Does anyone know of a FIX? Thanks

Have you re-booted all the device on the network at the same time?

Is windows streaming network service turned on?


Do you have a backup from before the problem started?

Ken J-
I rebooted the PC first then PS3, nothing changed. Tried PS3 then PC, nothing changed.
Yes, windows streaming is turned on.
I imagine that win 7 created a restore point. But a phyiscal back up, no...
Here is a screen shot of what I am talking about:1st screen shot.
Can't click on the box, grayed out
Screen shot #2:
it says it's on, but you can't disable it.
Screen shot #3
doesn't show my network, can't name my media library and the OK box is grayed out.
Please help!!
Thanks
