Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Xbox support can't even seem to help me on this one. I am running a XP SP2 computer. I have done all the steps to share media through windows media player 11 to my xbox 360. I did the library > sharing. Ports are open. Wireless network is working fine, but when I go to the media blade and hit one of the three media types my computer still does not show. There are three computers connected to my network, the only one that pops up on the media blade is one running vista (which isn't the one I need) If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
I had the same problem in Windows XP and I just created a workgroup to share files on the network. Follow these steps if anyone is still having this problem. My gf has vista and must do it automatically but it's just a matter of remembering to establish a workgroup.
- Enable sharing on WMP 11 --> This should adjust windows firewall automatically but be sure to unblock ports for other firewalls, if need be.
- Create a workgroup --> Start...Control Panel....Network setup wizard.
Follow the steps, if you're connectnig through a router, select "this computer connects through a residentail gateway", apply this to any other computers that want to share files on this network, if necessary.
Restart computer to let the workgroup settings take effect and voila...your computer will now be detected.

Block the share option on the Vista computer and try to setup sharing to the xbox once more.
