However, you mentioned that 103 is using SMB V1 which means that SMB V1 is then already running in my case as my 103 connects with no issue (I mean that it was running before any registry modifications). So 203 should have then found and used the same protocol.
Anyway, adding the registry entries that are supposed to enable SMB V1 and V2 does not change anything. And it works well with a NAS Synology through SMB, so the issue is not on the 203 side (and it continues to work with the 103).
Yes, SMB V1 is supported, the 103 works Ok, but the likelihood is that the 203 negotiates V2 so the stronger authentication mechanism is in use, which then fails. It would be worth logging the NAS to find out how it is authenticating, if that’s working OK.
Further research shows the 203 supports only SMB v2, so forcing Win7 to use V1 won’t work.
Use eventvwr in Win 7 to see if it logs why the authentication is failing.
It’s worth checking the settings in this extract from a user with the same issue.............(note particularly the comment about password protection). SMB V2 uses strong authentication.
“My Win7 x64 settings:
Under the "Sharing>>Advanced Sharing" option of the folder properties I have given permissions to Everyone.
Similarly, under the "Security" tab, I have given full-control to Everyone.
Under "Control Panel>>Network & Sharing Center>> Advanced sharing settings" I have the following:
Network Discovery: On
File and printer sharing: On
Public folder sharing: Off (was previously on, but that didn't work)
File sharing connections: Use 128-bit
Password protected sharing: On
HomeGroup Connections: Windows manages. (Note: I have not set up a homegroup).
With the above settings, my share is accessible and playing smoothly from the player. Oppo now accepts my username/password combination. With password protection turned off it would not work. Oppo support emailed me in response to my inquiry and said that the player must input a password. At this juncture I'm not 100% certain that giving continued access to Everyone is a requirement, but I have noticed that nonetheless my phone now asks for a user/pass when before it could access my share without. I might experiment in the future after I savor my victory, but for now I'm leaving my settings as is.”
