Question about Iomega Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have the Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link DX HD Media Player which came bundled with a wireless adapter. I have a wireless network set up in my home and the player is able to "see" the different machines in the house but I am unable to successfully connect and browse my shared folders on the computers. It keeps popping up "wrong username or password." I initially tried entering the login credentials for the different computers and even tried disabling the password on one of the machines but no luck. I have checked to ensure access rights for shared folders, my sharing options both for home and public networks just in case. I can however access my files via the media streaming options on Windows 7. One of my machines dual boots Win 7 and Linux Mint, when I start up in Linux Mint I can browse and play media via the shared folders option well. How can I get it to successfully access files (shared in Win 7) via the shared folders option?

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs $6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
Goodluck!

make sure both computers are on the same workgroup.. make sure you have the firewall settings to allow incoming connections to your shared files... make sure you have allowed acces to them in windows security panel..if you can access the media then you are almost there with the setting... fasted way is to right click on start choose explore then right click on drive or folder you want to share and then choose share from menu.. it will change your firewall and security settings so long as you have already turned off the windows advisor..

To enable file sharing you need to follow the below steps
I moved this to networking for better exposure. I'll give you some basic tips, but it's generally pretty simple.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.
Let me know if this will help

WPA is not very stable and I have seen many problems with this. Simply change router setting to be configured with WEP and use a good strong password in hex 0-9 and a-f . WPA is horrible any way, and who the heck is gonna sit out side your home to hack it? It is not a WIN 7 problem but more like aging encryption.

How do i download from piratebay to my iomega screenplay dx


You may not be able to do it directly, as torrent portals such as the piratebay are supposed to use a specific client software (i.e. uTorrent, nTorrent, etc.) which only can be installed on PCs.
Download the items into your PC, and then you can transfer them onto DX via USB.

Iomega screenplay dx


It may depend on what type of file system you chose when formatting it. For file-type support beyong 1.5 Gb, such as high-resolution videos, aka. HD movies, Iomega should be able to recognize NTFS file system. Perhaps you chose FAT, or FAT32? In that case Iomega may not recognize it.

How do i connect my iomega screnplay director for the first time?


First Time Setup: 1. Connect the power supply to the ScreenPlay Director and an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or power outlet. 2. Press the power button on the front of the ScreenPlay Director to turn it on. 3. Turn on your TV and change the input setting as needed to receive input from the ScreenPlay Director. 4. When the ScreenPlay Director setup wizard appears on the TV screen, select your language and the TV screen aspect ratio, then configure your network connection. Refer to the user's manual if you need additional instructions. NOTE: If you wish to skip the network configuration during first time setup, you can add it at a later time using Settings from the ScreenPlay Director home menu. See the user's manual for detailed instructions. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you need any other information about your device, I would suggest looking at the user's manual as it will pretty much answer any other questions you have about your device.
