How can this be solved in Windows 10. My guess is that the standard installation installs some of Windows Live. So how can I get rid of itConfused

Thanks Levi!

As this thread shows, under Windows 7 I had to remove all components of Windows Live (Essentials) to be able to connect to and access my shared folders using my LG BD390. It seems possible that the problem was caused by the Windows Live ID Sign-In Assistant - and this culprit was installed with any of the Windows Live components including the Messenger. In Windows 10 this component seems to be integrated into the system and prevents me from seeing and accessing my shared folders despite the fact that I setup all sharing settings correctly. I only see the name of my PC as the file server but none of the shared folders is displayed...

I would appreciate if you have any idea...

tia, Tom

So you would like to share content from your Win 10 machine to your LG BD390? Can you install Kodi on that BD player?

Make sure your BD player is on the same network, some people like static IPs others like DHCP (I do), I just let my router do the work, it's probably smarter than what I am anyway haha.

Try using the Homegroup method mentioned in the wiki for using SMB (link in my sig below) and report back, if you get stuck anywhere.

Point to note: I just started updating SMB for Windows 10 today so that section is in progress, but the process is exactly the same as Windows 7 for reference.

Hi again. Yes from Win 10 desktop to bluray player. I use DHCP but assigned fixed IPs to my regular devices. Worked like a charm until I upgraded Win7 Pro 64bit to Win10 64bit. Before this, I had a problem caused by Windows Live (Essentials) programs but after uninstalling all of them it worked. I double checked all network settings and all so I am certain that Windows 10 installed something that used to be part of the Windows Live Essentials. I will try what is on the wiki but I am doubtful. Unfortunately, the LG BD390 is now 6 years old and does not allow the installation of external software...

Thanks in advance!

Tom

P.S. The homegroup method will not work as I cannot enter a non-windows device like my BD-390 to the homegroup - there is no dialog to enter the password...

It is more of adding folders to be shared to a workgroup and thus should be seen by your BD player.

Hom do I add folders to a homegroup - there is only a dialog for file types - that does not help!

Please read the wiki very carefully.
