Windows 7: Streaming videos to xbox 360

Streaming videos to xbox 360

Hi everyone,

Having an annoying problem.

I have a laptop running windows 7, connected to an external hard drive. I keep all of my .avi files on the external hard drive.

I have set up sharing with the xbox - it picks up files in the following folders:

Public Videos
Recorded TV

Videos in these folders can be played on the xbox.

However, it doesn't pick up any of the shared folders in the external hard drive (G:\Movies etc). The files on the external drive have been added to the WMP library and show up there no problem, and I have manually set the folders to be shared.

Any ideas?

I think it's because the "shared files" you might have to go into settings in windows 7 and check what you want to share with Xbox, etc.

^ It is set to allow the xbox unrestricted access in the advanced sharing settings in the control panel..
