I get that problem when I try to share from a network drive but not from my C drive of the computer that is running PC Share Manager.

some thoughts

I have problems with PCSHARE and gave up. There are other options. Vuse works as does what I use - Twonky media manager. (do a google for it).

Also make sure if you are looking for videos that on the TV you use the "VIDEO" play icon, pics for pics and music for music. Else the files won't show up. I do this by mistak often, going into a music folder from the video icon on the TV and no music appears. I have to go in with the music icon on the TV to find music files. (sort of a pain) I wish you could just access a "external media and play any of the compatible formats, video, pics, music.

anyway - to play videos I also am encoding them with Adobe encoder and it makes the .wmv
they play well except at 3:36 seconds my audio drops out. (dunno why) = (

No files

My guess would be that the server hasn't yet indexed the files. It's the "Set changed state" icon, and it will take a long time if you have a lot of folders to scan.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
