Windows 7: Can't detect my PS3 since moving to W7

28 Apr 2010   #11

Windows pro 7 32 and 64 bits

The folders you share needs to be in the right categories. The way casng shares his files is the same way as using Windows Media Player. You have to had those files to your library. After that it should work. The only Drawback is that it's a pain in the a** to update when you had new files. you have to wait for windows to update or delete / recreate the library. Believe me Tversity is the way to go and on the plus side you will be able to transcode any kind on video format not just the ones your ps3 supports. And no installing codecs on your windows machine won't do the trick with media sharing. So why not help yourself and go there instead of waisting an other hour configuring windows :)

Do you have your router opened up to port 5001

I think that is the port that PS3 Media Server uses.

Just open up on the router TCP and UDP and also make sure if you are using a Firewall.

to open those ports as well.

Another thing that I can help you with is using TeamViewer and I can work on your computer from here becuase I am using PS3 media server and it works fine for me. It is really up to you.
