PC Share Manager download for Windows 7

by kmeekings / January 2, 2011 7:49 PM PST

I just bought a SAMSUNG home cinema system HT-C6500. I got it specifically becuase of it's net work capabilities and tried to link it to my home PC which is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. HORROR! No download seems to be available from Samsung. I can't believe it. The product was launched after Windows 7 came to market! There must be a work around. Can anyone help me?

32 bit software garbage

The Samsung download for PC Share Manager is available from Samsung in Vista 32 bit version only according to Samsung. The Vista 32 bit OS version evidently must also work with Windows 7 32 bit OS. I now have the Samsung PC Share Manager working in compatability mode in Windows 7 64 bit OS. The Share Manager seems to work and I have been able to access the files on my PC from the Samsung. The Share Manager did not automatically keep current with the contents on the PC and had to be manually refreshed. The application appears to have a very very strange user interface program library on my computer and I wonder if that is normal. I would like to find a standard way to allow the Samsung to share the files on my PC without using the Samsung software.

Use Windows Media Player not Samsung PC Share Manager
by 64win7server / January 7, 2011 12:09 PM PST

I have found the Windows Media Player can be configured to make media files available to the Samsung. I can see two entries on my Samsung now. One entry is for the computer name and one is for the PC Share Manager. They both seem to work fine although I prefer the Windows Media Player. Just configure the player under Options / Library to make the files available to any computer on the network. My computer and the Samsung BD-C7500 both have WiFi and also communicate with my Access Point to the internet. The Samsung has no trouble finding some DivX files in the Library or the Media Player.

Thanks to all. I finally downloaded the XP/Vista version and found out that it works OK. But aas said in a previous post it needs to be manually refreshed to update the content on the Samsung device.
