Hello all, I have two machines. 1 Win XP SP3 as a Media Server and Windows 7 Ultimate x64 as my primary workstation. The XP box has shared folders that host all my media content. The Windows 7 machine has mapped drives pointing to those shares.
Here is what's happening:
On my Windows 7 machine I access the media share and play a movie. The movie will play for around 14 minutes then I'll receive errors that the file cannot be found. I open Win Explorer and find the mapped drives have disconnected.
What I have done:
I have followed the steps in this MS article: Mapped Drive Connection to Network Share May Be Lost
With no luck.
I have tried everything suggested in this MS technet thread: Loss of mapped drive, networked drive disconnects
I have set the local policy on both machines to have a maximum session idle limit of 99999 minutes. no luck with this either.
I have disabled my Comodo firewall on both machines. no luck.
I have disabled my Windows firewall on both machines. no luck.
