Windows 7: Media Server NOT UPDATING!

Media Server NOT UPDATING!

I'm trying to watch videos on my PS3, and it has always worked perfectly when I put videos in my videos folder, then they become available from the windows media server on my ps3. Now, all of a sudden, I guess windows has just decided to no longer update the file listings. I've updated it like 50 times on the ps3 and it just won't show the new videos I've added.

Hi Jerail,

Hopefully you've found a solution by now, but if not -- have you tried completely disconnecting the server, restarting both the PS3 and your PC, and reconnecting? Also, have you installed or activated any security software on your PC since the last time your PS3 Media Server folders were updating correctly?

Actually I never really resolved the issue. I was trying to watch videos from my laptop.
Since then I got my actual desktop server up and running again, so there's no problem. I still find it kind of weird how I was able to watch the videos that were already there in the listings, but no matter how many times I restarted the laptop and/or PS3, it wouldn't update its listings.

I use PS3 Media Server.

I have no problems updating the directory. I'll give it that much.

I just never liked Media Player becuase it doesnt' put it in directories like media server did. The files were all over the place.
