Ive changed the share from workgroup to HOMEGROUP.

my pi can see the computer the shares are on, thru UPNP. So it knows the computer is there. I can access the shares from other linux computers so i know its not a linux problem. Only thing I can think of is ive left the WINS server ip at

ALso, when i had a hacked western digital media player plus on my network, openelec could see the hard drives attached thru it as smb shares.

At a loss here.
