Hi bogdanbz,
looks like the problem is the share setup on your win7 pc.
Can your other pcs see the shares on the win 7 pc?
Can you copy / paste files from your win7 pc to the other pcs and vice versa
Have you set up the shares on the win7 pc using your username and pass for that pc and set the permissions for that user? (I have my permissions set to full)
Are you using the same user name and pass as above on the mede8er to access the win7 pc?
On your win7 pc are you trying to share a whole drive or just a folder?

The key to accessing shares on win7 64 bit from the mede8er is to get the share permissions correct on the win 7 pc, after that it works fine.

Let me know the answers to these questions and how you get on.

Cheers
Shamus

Hello again,
I don't think that i have a share setup problem because the other pc (one with vista 32 and one with win xp) can see the shares on my win7 64 bits, i can copy/paste, create folder within win7 shares from others computers .
I have tried Guest method share, no luck, i have created another account on my win7, i have set shares to full for guests, everyone and the second account - no luck.
I am using the same user and pass on the med8er as for others pc that can acces my win 7 shares.
I put my med8er on static ip, on DHCP, but still no luck.
As i wrote here, i have tried all the possibilities, but i still cannot see shares on my win 7 64 bits pc from med8er.
Med8er finds my win7 64 bits pc on workgroup, opens it, but no shares.
I can listen radio shoutcasts with no problem, i can copy folders/files from my win 7 pc to med8er hdd, i can see UPNP shares from my win 7 pc, but no network share.



Please tell me how did u managed to see shares on your win 7 64 bit pc.

Thanks!

I am using symantec antivirus and firewall activated on my pc, but i even tried to disabled them, but still no shares.

Hi bogdanbz
can you tell me what firmware version you are using so I can replicate your setup and see what could be wrong. Once I have done that I will get back to you

Hello Shamus,

I am using 2.0.2 firmware. I have tried 2.0.1, the same problem.
Thanks!

Hi bogdanbz'
this is how I set my pc and mede8er up (I know this is a repeat of previous posted info - sorry)
Note this is based on a username of Shamus, a password of beer and a computer called strike - substitute your own details as necessary. Shamus is a member of the administrators group and was the username I set the pc up with
1. On pc go to control panel then network and internet
2. go to network and sharing centre
3. Under view your active networks make sure network is EITHER home or work NOT public - change if necessary
4.select change advanced sharing settings
5. Select turn on network discovery
6. Turn on file and printer sharing
7. turn on public folder sharing
8. under file sharing connections select use 128 bit encryption
9. under password protected sharing slect turn off password protected sharing
10. under homegroup connections select use user accounts and passwords
11. click save changes and close out of control panel
12. open explorer and right click on drive that contains folder you want to share
13. click properties and then security tab
14. make sure your username (Shamus) and "Users" are there. If not:
click edit
click add
type name you want to add (eg Shamus) and click check names. Make sure the name is found - should look like strike\Shamus. Click ok, now Shamus(strike\Shamus) should appear in list of names. Do same for users if necessary.
Set permissions for Shamus - mine are set to full.
Click ok to get back out of properties
15. right click on folder you want to share and select share with specific people
16. make sure Shamus is in the list - if not use the down arrow to bring up the list of names, select Shamus and click add
17. click share and then done.
18. Go to mede8er and setup shortcut to win7 pc as described before using Shamus as name and beer as password and save shortcut
19. try shortcut and see if it works
20. if it doesn't worl switch off mede8er, unplug power, plug power back in and restart and try again

Let me know how you get on, I have done this at least 20 times while testing firmware, etc and it definately does work but it can be incredibly frustrating when it doesn't.
If there is any step you are unsure about (probably because I haven't been clear enough) just ask


Cheers

1. Navigate to the following location in the registry editor.
        MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\
2. On the right side, double-click on 'everyoneincludesanonymous' and change the 'Value data' from '0' to '1'
3. Double-click on 'NoLmHash' and change the 'Value data' from '1' to '0'
4. Navigate to the following location in the registry editor:
        MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters
5. Double-click on 'restrictnullsessaccess' and change the 'Value data' from '1' to '0'
6. Close the registry editor

Finally worked for me, now i can see my shares over the network from my win 7 64bits pc!

Hi there,
I'm new, so please be patient. I tested the Win7-64 Workgroup share. No folders showed.
Then I followed the procedure I read somewhere::
1. Navigate to the following location in the registry editor.
        MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\
2. On the right side, double-click on 'everyoneincludesanonymous' and change the 'Value data' from '0' to '1'
3. Double-click on 'NoLmHash' and change the 'Value data' from '1' to '0'
4. Navigate to the following location in the registry editor:
        MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters
5. Double-click on 'restrictnullsessaccess' and change the 'Value data' from '1' to '0'
6. Close the registry editor and rebooted the computer.
Now the share on my computer is visible.
Default Mede8er started with a connection with guest and no password. With that no entrance!
I changed guest to MyName and password to MyPassword (the same user as the owner of the directory) and then I got access to the files in the shared folders.
Cheers, Luc

Hi
I have Win7 64bit on my computers and streaming to Mede8er (v2.02) works fine without any fancy tricks.
Created an additional username with limited priviliges and password on the computer, created shares of the folders I wanted and made sure that these folders had the username set for reading only.
The additional security settings is up to you depending on your personal concerns.
Regards
