New BD-P4600 user with Windows 7

by newp4600user / May 7, 2010 4:43 AM PDT

Hello,
This week I purchased a P4600. I hooked it up to my network (wired) and to my LCD TV (HDMI). Upon startup, it asked me to upgrade the firmware, which I did.

I went to add my shared folder on my windows 7 machine but I cannot. It finds my computer but when I put in my username/password it says it is not correct. I even put in the computername\username and password and that did not work either.

So I tried the manual way and that did not work either. I have followed the guides on the internet and can't seem to get it to work.

I even created a new user account to make sure it wasn't my user/pass --- username was user, and password was pass. I gave that user account the correct permissions, and still no go.

This seems to be a known issue -- is there ANY way for me to get a shared folder from windows 7 onto the P4600 over a wired network?

Thanks,
Peter

newp4600user,

Windows 7 was released after the product was in the market. I don't know if it will support Windows 7, so I'm attempting to have it tested.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
