I have a mediasonic 8 bay USB mass storage unit with 5 hard drives of 2 TB each, containing my movie collection, stored as .ISO files, connected to my windows 7 computer.
I want to be able to access those .ISO files, via my Boxee media player and my Micca media player. I want to be able to access those files on my Windows 7 computer.
All are on the same network.
I am seeking advice on setting up home network. I am quite familiar with computer hardware and software but I am not very good with networking.
I have posted another thread for selecting NAS.
How do I make the .iso files available, over my home network to my other devices, such as a Boxee player and a micca media player?
The boxee and the micca do see my windows PC (user name admin) but login is failing. I disabled the windows password for admin and I cannot still login.
I turned on
1. network discovery
2. file and printer sharing - enabled sharing of videos and printers
3. anyone with network access can read files
4. media streaming options - allow all
5. 128 bit encryption
password protected sharing
I turned on video sharing
