Question  Samba problem
Post: #1
Hi, I'm using XBMC on win 7 pro. I have a simple question relating to samba issues.

Does XMBC use its own samba client or does it use the in-built smb services in win 7?

The reason for asking is that I cant access my network shares and am trying to work out where the problem is.

I can't access smb shares in XBMC either so if XBMC uses its own client then I could conclude that my server is the problem and not the win 7 pc.
