Windows 7: Files with certain audio codecs not showing on my network

Files with certain audio codecs not showing on my network

Hi all. Not sure if this is a W7 thing, or a Vista thing...

I have a wired network with several computers. Right now, I am dealing with two: my W7 Ult. SP-1 machine, which is .100, and my Vista SP-1 machine, which is .102

I can browse to the Vista machine from my W7 machine, and share files and folders. Except, this one situation that is really bugging me. In my Vista shared folder, I have two .mov files. One has the wav/PCM-16 audio codec, and the other has the AAC codec. They both play fine in Vista, but I can only see the first from my W7 machine. The .mov with the AAC codec is not visible. I have not yet played around with other codecs; I have only dealt with these two for now.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen?

Thanks in advance.

What codec the movie uses should make no difference. Are both files shared?

Aha! Turns out that's it. But this is weird.... I had to add myself to the group/users name in the aac .mov properties. I did not have to do that for the pcm .mov - that makes no sense. I created both files from vid converter sw, but have done nothing different with each pass. Strange.

In any event, that solves it - thanks!
