v17 Unable to add SMB source
#1
Ok, so I've been using kodi 17.5 on an Android nexus player to watch movies/tv shows on my external hdd connected via a windows 7 machine. 
 
Now it doesn't work.

I recently disconnected the hdd to add some video files to an offline computer for my kids, but when I connected the hdd back to the original machine, kodi no longer recognizes it.
If I go to file manager > add source > windows network (smb): there is nothing there.

Both nexus player and windows machine are on the same network
​​​​​​

Things I've tried:
Cleaning library

setting up file sharing through a home group and "share with" per: SMB/Windows (wiki)

set folders to be shared with everyone with full control.

restarting both windows machine and nexus player. 

reinstalling kodi 17.5

anyone have any ideas?

edit: Nexus player can detect the external HDD via es file explorer,but not kodi
