I have 3 hr24's networked with windows 7 (works flawlessly) and vista sp2 box. The vista box uses wmp11 and sees all my shared folders but will not play either photo or music files, the photo files instead show a grid of yellow icons. I have tried many,many different methods with no success...a strange (and revealing) sidenote is that the windows preloaded vista "sample pictures" and "sample music" files all work great, but not my self created picture or music files. Both the music and picture folders are share enabled. The windows 7 box displays all of the same (copied from the vista box) personally created files flawlessly. Why does the "sample folders" and their files work but not my own self created and shared files? Would the "take ownership" approach work? One thing I've noticed is that the "sample folders" have administrator permission. Is vista sp2 wmp11 and mediashare fixable?
