A little confused about your question? Is it the WD TV you are talking about? Need a clearer Question

HI Drtweak
Sorry I think my question got cut off. Basically two of my tvs have WD media players attached to them. My windows 7 computer has multiply drives connected to it internally and externally. My "M" drive (1TB external) is the only drive which my media players will play movies from. My other drives, 2 internally connected and 2 externally connected are visible by my WD's but say their are no folders in them but they are almost full . I've shared them on my network done what others have said to do but I'm stuck using one drive only and transferring files off this drive as it gets full .So my question is why does my WD media player only see the files on one of my hard drives?

If you are using the latest model of WD Players then in the main screen choose Videos. The new remote has a row of colored buttons that let you choose between Green is Sort and Filter, Red is Select Content Source, the Yellow is Change view, and the Blue is the Dashboard. If you are using an old remote, which is smaller the selections are identical except the buttons are not on the remote. After choosing Videos in the main screen then push the Top (UP) Button which should let you choose between the same selections which are displayed on the top right of the screen. To change between USB Ports on the player the Select Content Source is the button that you want.

On your win7 pc, open media player, make sure all the media you want to share has been detected otherwise import their location in the media player library manager, While in the libraries view click the stream menu and enable Automatically allow devices to play my media
Next, click the Stream drop-down menu again, and select More streaming options. On the resulting screen you can name the media library. The screen will also show a list of devices on the network that are capable of accessing the library. Make sure your WD's are allowed

Your WD tv should now be able to find and play the files.

Hi Popatim
Thank you very much for the info. I tried what you said but I still have the same issue. My WD`s see the other drives on my network but when i open them it says there`s no files available. It`s weird that the wd`s see the hdds but not what`s on them

Thanks again
Peter
