I have been struggling now for several days trying to view photos from a PC on my home network and also on a Buffalo Terrastation NAS. When I do a scan, the NAS and also drives on the PC are returned.
So I check the ones I want to share, enter the user ID and click ADD. When I return to the menu, there are no shares. If I reboot, the shares I added are now along the left side under "built-in".
When I navigate to any of the shares I added, it tells me it is searching for media files. However, when finished, it returns with a message that there are no media files found, but these drives have folders and folders of photo files.
Firewalls (TrendMciro PC-CIllin) are OFF.
NOTES (in case this helps):
1) the PC has no password set up, so I only entered my user ID to loginto my PC (win XP pro)
2) I didn't think the NAS had a user and password to access the files, but the PhotoBridge will not let me add the share unless I entered at a minimum, the user ID. Therefore, I used the user ID and password required to access the the NAS browser utility.
3) My home is is a wired network with a main panel in the basement. There I have a D-Link Gamers Lounge giga-router.
From the giga-router, I connect to a D-Link 8-port gig-switch with a single cable.
This giga-switch is patched to the main panel for each room, thus all 8 ports on the switch are connected to a room's cable in the main panel.
In addition, in some rooms where there are mulitple network devices, I have 5 port D-Link giga-switch connected to the wall outlet. This wall outlet is connected to the main panel in the basement. For instance, in one room I have the NAS and the PC with photos connected to one of these 5-port switches.
