Windows 7: CIFS Sign In

CIFS Sign In

Hello Forum,

I recently purchased a LG Blu-ray player (model BD670) and successfully added it to my (wireless) network. When I try to access my computer from the LG player it brings up a “CIFS Sign In” screen which is looking for a user ID & Password. I have tried entering my computer login & password (correct upper / lower case) but it does not accept it.
Can someone please tell me just what a “CIFS” used ID & password is? Where do I find this CIFS login Information?

By the way, I also posted the ‘Microsoft Answers’ forum; http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-do-i-know-what-the-cifs-sign-is/6b900999-5ff4-49a0-856f-ab80178caf56?page=4 I have tried some of their suggestions, but still no luck.

Thanks!

Here is some info on CIFS ( Common Internet File System )

A comment from a guy who purchased the same device;

QUOTE
Network setup took me a little while. You can either use the software that comes with the player and install Nero Home Media Server essentials or manually share folders and hope that your computers pop up correctly. I'm still working out the kinks. To log onto a computer manually, you click the computer name, a menu labeled CIFS pops up asking for user name and password. You'll have to create a user account on that corresponding computer. Enter the same user name and password and you'll be in.

Thanks for the reply Mike,

I’ve read that particular article and tried the Windows solution, (not the ‘Nero’ solution) but to no avail. I created a ‘Guest’ user sign in on my system, without a password, but the LG player did not like this approach either. I guess I’m still clueless as to what user ID and password on my system equates to a CIFS user ID / password??

Thanks Again!

Hello Forum,

With regards to my (CIFS Sign In) post, I have read several articles suggesting that “Windows Live Sign-in Assistant” is a solution for those having trouble using CIFS. Does anyone have any experience w/ Windows Live Sign-in Assistant and CIFS?

Thanks Again!

Sorry that was no help to you. I can't find any other info on that device. I have never installed that one,and I don't know anybody who has.

Thanks Again Mike,

I guess I didn’t realize that CIFS was such a mystery. Even though my thread relates to a LG device, I assumed that a CIFS Login / Password problem would fall under a Windows umbrella, hence my posting. Would you know of any other informational forums that might be able to shed some light on this mystery??

Once again, my thanks!

CIFS Sign In

Hello Forum,

I have posted this problem on the “Network & Sharing” forum, unfortunately, no one was able to come up with a viable solution. I’m posting this problem once again on this forum in hopes that someone may be able to help solve my problem. …see below,

Can someone please tell me just what a “CIFS” used ID & password is? Where do I find this CIFS login Information? I recently purchased a LG Blu-ray player (model BD670) and successfully added it to my (wireless) network. When I try to access my computer from the LG player it brings up a “CIFS Sign In” screen which is looking for a user ID & Password. My home network consists of 1 PC (Windows 7, 64bit OS), 1 Router (Netgear wireless, model WNDR37AVv1), and 2 LG LG Blu-ray Players ( model BD670 WiFi Built-in).
I’ve tried entering my PC login / PSWD, tried logging into CIFS using the guest ID / PSWD, also tried logging in using the ‘Home Group’ password (using HomeGroup as the ID), none of these ID / Password combinations worked. I do not have ‘Windows Live Essentials 2011’, ‘Windows Live Sign-in Assistant’, or ‘Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant’ running on my PC. I have also turned off password protected sharing in the Network and Sharing Center.
By the way, I also posted the ‘Microsoft Answers’ forum; http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-do-i-know-what-the-cifs-sign-is/6b900999-5ff4-49a0-856f-ab80178caf56?page=4 I have tried some of their suggestions, but still no luck.

…any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated!!

You may not have them running on your PC but are they installed at all? If so, you might try removing them, reboot, and see if you can get to it then.

Hello FLiGi7 …thanks for your reply!

If your referring to ‘Windows Live Sign-in Assistant’ and ‘Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant’, I checked my application listing and they are not listed. I’ve browsed links you’ve listed and it’s obvious that there are more people out there with this same problem. As I have seen in looking through related links there are a number of solutions, some have corrected the problem, the majority have not. As I’ve explained, I have looked into & tried several ‘fixes’ if you will prior to this posting, but to no avail.
I was hoping to find a sure cure for this problem vs. changing a bunch of system settings, possibly effecting something else.
