Hope I am in the right spot with my question/problem.
Appreciate any feedback whatsoever, thanks.
TV: Samsung PN51D6500 (Smart & Allshare) vers. 17 update.
Laptop: Running Windows 7 pro 64 bit
Router: Linksys WiFi N750
Networked Hardrive USB connected to above router. Its a WD 1TB with movie library
All device access is wireless.
Also using Chromecast on a hdmi port on tv.
I am using the latest version of Allshare Ver. 126.96.36.19931_10 recently downloaded (2 wks ago).
I have no seeming problems using Allshare with all desired connectivity and viewing...except...that the router attached drive is not recognized(**) by Allshare nor the TV.
The drive is mapped and access to the contents are accessible by the Windows network and other devices on it (except the tv). The TV is recognized as a device by Windows and AllShare.
** caveat here...a drop down window clicking on “My Computers Shared Folders” within Allshare does show such folders on the laptop including those on the network drive (but no contents). If I attempt to access/copy a folder off the drive, Allshare crashes.
Is AllShare shy about router attached drives? Or have I missed a setting.
Thanks for reading.
