Windows 7: Xbox 360 PROBLEM PLEASE HELP

Xbox 360 PROBLEM PLEASE HELP

Hello all.

I had Windows XP on 32bit. I have since upgraded to Windows 7 32bit. When I was running on Windows XP I had no problem media sharing using WMP 11 and my xbox 360 which is all cabled into my router using ethernet cable. Since upgrading to Windows 7 my PC cannot find my xbox 360 on the sharing centre ??? I have even downgraded from WMP12 back to WMP11, which has made no difference.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I can try to get Windows to find my xbox 360 again. If it makes a difference my Xbox Live works fine.

Thanks

Go into WMP12 and enable sharing.

Your best bet would be to enable windows media center and link your 360 to it.

You could give Tversity a try to see if it works for you.

Do you have network detection turned on, on your computer?

That's partly the problem then. In order to learn about things whether it be the built-in DLNA server for Windows Media or Tversity, reading the website or Googling is very helpful.
