I cannot get my Xbox to stream music off my computer using Windows Media Center.

When I try to connect it just sits there and stalls and says it is unable to connect.

I went to my PC and saw this message:

can you give any more detail? for one thing, did it ever work? or is this a new thing? if it's a new thing, you need to focus on what changes you've made to your system (any new software, any upgraded items, any system/windows updates, changed settings, etc).


What OS are you using? did you have any problems with the setup wizard on the 360 and the PC? are you using homegroups?


If you're still using Windows XP, good luck. Networking in that OS was always an adventure.


Network sharing on Windows 7 couldn't be any more idiot-proof as long as you use homegroups.

Yes, WMC has worked in the past although I have had these same issues before.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate Edition.

I did not have any issues initially setting up the connection.

I did try to connect my 360 with my laptop, but it will not connect either.

Windows 7 Ultimate, eh?



share your music via homegroups. right-click on your mp3 folder and select "share with homegroup (read/write)". afterwards, redo your 360 wizard.


it's much easier and reliable than the old Windows XP way of doing things.


if it's not a sharing issue, try reinstalling Windows Media Center.

I am pretty sure the folder is already shared.

How do I reinstall WMC

I swear I can't find a link anywhere?

Control Panel - Uninstall Programs - Turn Windows Features on or off (right panel) - expand Media Features - Check or Uncheck "Windows Media Center".


restart the system.


and then go back and check it on to reinstall it. restart system.



if that doesn't work, try this:

but as for the sharing, it doesn't hurt to repair the share. right click and share with your homegroup.

Any good alternatives to WMC?

I really only use it to stream music from my PC.

I like the interface (album art, etc)
