Any Media Browser users have experience with folder locations over a network?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Media Browser locks up Media Center and all mouse functions when opened. This is for my roommates PC. I tried setting him up with my same Windows 7 64bit HTPC set up with the only difference is he is pointed at my Videos folder over my network. It did work for a test or 2 on some files but now it just locks everything up.

Is this from pointing the Media Browser to network folders?

Are you using the network path to the folder or trying a mapped drive? I think it's recommend to use the network path.

\\whateveryourservernameis\folderwithyourmedia

Does your roommate's PC have access to your folder? (Can you get to the files outside of Media Browser?)

He does have access to network but I only have my Videos and Music shared. I am not sure what you mean by "path". MB just lets me pick the folders and I choose my network ones.
