Full Version: Can't see XBMC on Windows 7
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I have a Acer Revo running XBMC Live and I use Ember Media Manager on my laptop running Windows 7 to manage the video files before I upload them to the externals that are hooked up to the Acer (I know, it's a little bit chaotic).
Anyway, I wanted to see if I could add the external as source on EMM through the network but Windows 7 doesn't see the XBMC machine at all.
Does anyone know how to have the XBMC show up on Windows 7?

Excuse me if I posted this in the wrong section.
You need to install samba and configure a share in order for your Windows machine to be able to access the external drive. You can find a guide on how to do it here.

It would probably be easiest to set the share path to /media so that any drives you have connected will be shared.

Hope this helps Smile
