Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I am streaming music through my windows media player to the xbox 360 (don't have windows media centre), and for some reason, I can only play songs through my xbox that are physically on the computer's hard drive, rather than my external one. I have added the external hard drive's songs to windows media player, but for some reason they won't show up on xbox.
Has anyone experienced this problem before?
In windows media player 11, click on the small down arrow below library and select media sharing. Check the box for share my media then turn on you console. I dialog box will pop up asking you to approve file sharing. You can then customize your options for that device. If the dialog box dose not pop up you have a firewall problem. For the Iomega Media Drive, you have to use the software that came with it. Open the program click on configure, select the folders icon, and look next to your media folders and make sure DLNA is on otherwise your console cannot access those folders.
