XBMC 12.3 (Frodo) + Win 10: Broken SMB Shares
#5
To clarify:
I was able to login and see the SMB's shared drives/folder
I was also able to then set the source to any shared drive that was hooked up via SATA inside the machine (D:, etc)
However my media is stored on drives that are in an external drive bay
Even though the internal and external drives are shared identically, when trying to open one as the video source XBMX reports "Invalid Argument".

So I know the login name & password are correct and working (once downgrading the Win10 machine to a local account and getting away from the Windows Live ID, which I still have no idea how one can use that with SMB).
The problem is that for some reason Win 10 handles some shared drives differently than others. In my case, the only difference I can see is their physical location and how they are connected to the computer. regardless however, the machine should treat all of the hard drives the same. There is no valid excuse for it to work with internal SATA drives but not external SB 3.0 drives.
