Hi there,

I have my PC upstairs in my computer room and my TV downstairs. I have everything hard wired. I am trying to figure out how I can network my external and internal storage drives to actually play from upstairs to my samsung TV (UN55D6000), so I dont have to run upstairs and back down connecting the HD to and from everytime I want to put something new on and watch it.

Oh, I can actually see my PC and laptop under my TV's source list and it says Network:p C:etc...

I just cant get it to read my internal or external.

-Windows 7
-Hardwired (everything is running into my Shaw Cable modem/switch)
-Samsung TV (UN55D6000)

I do also have the drives shared to the network it says PC:/Comp/Storage when I look at sharing options.

Media streaming is turned on, both my TV and Comp are selected as 'allow'.

any help would be awesome! thank you!!!

download "PC Share Manager" app for the TV and it should let you see network drives and PC share folders.
