Oddly enough I can't get my "Windows 8 Consumer Preview" to show up in Oppo's search list (although it shows up on every other device) so I can't test it for share access.

Thanks for the link Chris. I may play around some more when I get a chance with Win8 but I think I'm going to move away from SMB on the 103 and concentrate on using the DMR function. I managed to restore ISO capability on my 93 which is the main reason I was trying to get SMB going on the 103.

This is using SMB (I think) and with no Windows login password required. I do not see "Workgroup" as I guess my network setup must be different from yours.
I am very pleased!

I am glad it helped. I work as a pc tech, so I thought I'd document the steps (who likes to do that..haha), since I found it to be that simple with Windows 7. I believe the fact that I disabled SMB 2.0 to test, it may not support using your PC name and uses the workgroup name instead (default is workgroup).

Hi Bill,

I am a bit new to the terminolgies.

I am using Windows XP and have the Oppo 103 connected to my Network. All I did was try to access files that are stored on my Windows PC and also on my WDTV.

I am having issues with the entire library showing up all the time. Hard wored network connection is being used, Thanks.

Is this with DLNA or over SMB?

If you copy the files to a hard drive attached to the OPPO via USB does the behavior change?

I get the bad password error. I check the event log and I see the error "An attempt was made to query the existence of a blank password for account "Eric"
So seems like the Oppo is not passing the password properly or something else is up.

 

The initial folders you see when you open a share specify which file-types the Oppo will display. It's similar to the Music/Photo/Video selection on the Home Screen for browsing burnt discs or USB drives. I'm not sure why they decided to add an extra step to the process rather than simply have an optional filter while browsing, but my guess is that it has to do with the performance of the Oppo software.

 

Also, this is my post on how I got Win7 x64 sharing to work - I'm not sure if the same settings are present for Win 8 but maybe it will help:

I had my first real "WOW" moment in a long time today. I popped in Monster Music's George Benson & Al Jarreau Givin' It Up Multi Channel DVD-A to listen through the Oppo. Now, I've listened to this particular disc maybe 40-50 times over the years. It's one of those discs I put on to showcase my system to my family and friends. I usually play it on the DTS 96/24 format (It's a multi formatted disc) and today I actually heard instruments and sounds that I can honestly say I never heard before. On the track "Long Come Tutu", there were a couple of times I looked to the back of the room and said, "WTF was that!" There is some laughter on this track that I NEVER noticed before. It actually scared the crapp out of me because it sounded so life like and close to my right ear. As if someone was there next to me doing it. I was caught totally off guard. It's crazy. NEVER have I experienced this before. And I've had some nice players connected to this same system before. Namely a Marantz DV9600 that cost upwards of $1600 when it was released! This Oppo 103 sounds exponentially better in my opinion.

Now, I'm connected via HDMI because my Onkyo 818 doesn't have multi channel inputs. And I can still say that this is the best my discs have ever sounded. I'm actually considering a change in my receiver (used as a pre/pro now) to the Emotiva UMC-200 to see if I get better sound. But after this listening session, I'm not sure I want to experiment now. We'll see, but right now I'm leaning on sticking to what I have for a few more months.

Just wanted to let those into music that this player does a fantastic job.

I'm ripping my remaining hair out over the network sharing issue. I'm trying to browse a Win 7 shared folder over SMB from the 103 and always get a password screen that subsequently fails. It works perfectly when browsing a Win XP machine, no password needed or asked. I think reinstalling Win7 is overkill but there's got to be some way to make it behave. I've tried all the many formulas on this thread and none of them work, ever.

You could contact OPPO with the details and ask them if they want a sample disc.

Are these DVD Video or data discs?

Are all 500 of the same media id or are they a mixture?

I mean this sort of info:
Code:
 Mounted Media:         1Bh, DVD+R
 Media ID:              YUDEN000/T02

Did you see this? Give this a try.

1. Right click on the folder to share, choose the "Share with" option and then choose "Specific people..."
2. Choose "Everyone" from the drop down list and then click "Add" button (leave Permission Level at Read)
3. Click "Share" and then "Done"
4. Goto Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing>Advanced sharing settings
5. Goto "Home or Work" profile>"Password protected sharing" section and choose "Turn off password protected sharing"
6. Click "Save changes"

There is not a compelling reason to upgrade to 8 unless you have a PC/laptop with a tablet interface, or you want to take advantage of the OS' smaller footprint (a reduction in its predecessor, something that is rather unheard of when it comes to MS).

Oh, but yes. Everyone read. Everyone read/write. Password protected sharing on. Password protected sharing off. I turned off all existing shares and set up a test folder with its own share and went through all the permutations. Took hours. I can see the computer as a SMB server and get as far as photo/music/video but I always get the password screen and can go no further. Username alone, \Username, SERVER\Username, etc. No username. Two different usernames/accounts. Nothing cracks it, not even once.

Not sure how to get that code info you show, but they are DVD-R video DVD's I believe.

See this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Identification_Code

To diagnose this we are going to need more info than "DVD-R" and "doesn't work".

If none of them play then we need to know what format they were created in and what exactly happens when you put one in the player.

Stick one in your PC and look at the folders in Explorer, do you see a VIDEO_TS folder or something else?

Amen, I too have tried all the solutions suggested in this forum and cannot get BDP-103 to Login to three of my four W7 machines. I'm lucky, for some reason it likes my "W7HomeServer" system and works as advertised. But...I don't understand what is going on since all four systems are set up the same and share all files with each other.

I can actually think of quite a few, mounting of ISOs being one that would directly apply to the thread subject. WIN 8 by far is the best OS effort that MS has produced. It's just too bad they buried it under a tablet user interface instead of a desktop one. For $40 it is probably worth it.

Anyone here installed the pro kit from bluray chip.dk,and is having issues with it?

I agree...

Besides, if people wish to use the good old fashioned Windows start menu. All they have to do is install Classic Shell smile.gif

what is the benefits of file sharing via SMB vs. using a media server such as TVersity? I've been using TVersity for a while and it seems to work just fine. Once in a while I get some stuttering if I have too much going on on my network (4 people in the home all with wifi enabled devices) But as far as browsing my files wirelessly from the Oppo to my laptop, it works without a hitch. Will using SMB give me anything else?

A few things work with SMB that won't over DLNA.

External subtitles for media files.

AVCHD folders.

You can mount Blu-ray ISO files loopback and play them as if they were AVCHD folders.

Does Gracenote not work for DLNA? I forget...

You're thanking Oppo Digital for selling you a top notch blu-ray player with what is by your description an underperforming power cord?

I hope you didn't spend too much on that magic power cord.

I just had my oppo 103 delivered and I popped in some blurays...everything looks great. However, for some reason, I repeatedly get a "unrecognized disc" when I put The Avengers disc in. I've had to completely power down the oppo then reinsert the disc and maybe it would recognize and play the disc (about 50% of the time). This is the only disc that I have issues with. All my other discs seem to work just fine. I did not have this problem with the Avengers disc with my Sony Bluray player. Any idea what the problem may be? Any solutions? Thanks.

What edition of Windows 7 are you using?

Your post in the link you specified is very helpful. Thank you.

It's important to point out that the settings that will allow access are for PUBLIC, at least for my configuration. This is how I have it set up now and it's working great.

This is for Windows 7
  • Create a user X (I made the user an admin)
  • Create the share on the top level folder and give user X full rights in the Sharing | Adanced Sharing
  • Under the Security tab, give user X full access
  • Under Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings, I have the following under Public:
    Network Discovery: On
    File and printer sharing: Off
    Public folder sharing: Off
    File sharing connections: Use 128-bit...
    Password protected sharing: Turn on...

On the Oppo, you just type in the user's name and password. No need to prefix the user name unless you're on a domain, i.e., domain\username.

Not sure why it doesn't work for Home/Work configuration. When I have a bit more time, I'll have to do a little digging on this one.

BTW, when assigning permissions, make sure to unmount all the files if using Pismo file mount. Also, here are two command scripts to help you with mounting/unmounting all your files. Create two files, e.g., mountImages.cmd and UNmountImages.cmd. Put them in the parent folder, e.g., Blu-rays or Images and so on so it can iterate through the title-named folders. Note that Pismo will lose the mounts when you log off/restart, so you can put a shortcut of the mount cmd file into your startup folder. Make sure to run as administrator (set shortcut under Properties | Advanced).

Mount:
Code:
@echo off
for /f "delims=" %%f in ('dir /b /ad-h') do (
        pfm mount -a -s "%%f\AVCHD"
)

UNmount:
Code:
@echo off
for /f "delims=" %%f in ('dir /b /ad-h') do (
        pfm unmount -f "%%~ff\AVCHD"
)

I had same SMB issues on my Windows 7 system. Tried all the settings suggested and nothing worked. In googling SMB problems came across windows live sign in id assistant as causing sharing issues with SMB. Checked my installed programs to remove it but it was not present. Checked Internet Explorer and is was there as Add-In but disabled. The best way I found to remove it was to re-install Windows Live Essential and then under add/remove programs uninstall. Oppo now authenticates with blank username/password using anonymous login. Streaming everything flawlessly.

Since the problem is just with the one disc, the odds are that the disc playing surface needs to be cleaned. It may also be a defective disc. With Blu-ray, manufacturing defects may not be visible to the naked eye.
