All I know about Windows is how to swear at it, but people do have success with SMB on Windows 7. Windows 8 seems even more troublesome for SMB.Rather than fight it I would get a little NAS box. They usually have both SMB and DLNA.-Bill

The Haunted Palace (1963), produced and directed by Roger Corman. Vincent Price finds himself possessed by the spirit of an evil ancestor: a malevolent, vengeful sorcerer. The really bad kind: he has a Necronomicon and knows how to use it. Originally titled Edgar Allan Poe's The Haunted Palace, this is actually based on "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" by HP Lovecraft, who does get credit.
