I am a total noob and do not own a player of any kind. (But I will.)
I was travelling today and bought the Dec 2009 ver of MAXIMUM PC. There is some stuff about getting shares to work right in XP, Vista, and Home Server.
Like I said, I'm a noob, but I thought of all you guys. Maybe this isn't even on point to the problems people are having, and maybe the know-how represented here goes far beyond. Anyway, here is what it said:
SEARCH NETWORK SHARES
Searching network shares is easy, if you have access to the machine that is hosting those shares. Installing Windows Desktop Search 4.0 on a Windows machine that supports it will make any shares hosted on that machine searchable by the user. That applies to XP, Vista and Home Server.
If you want to search non-Windows network shares, you'll need to install a third party tool, such as Copernic Desktop Search Pro (copernicDOTcom) $50
