    I just can't get it to work. I know this line of code is supposed to be in settings.xml:

    But, I'm still a little confused about what information to input. I understand:
    -My computer's I.P.
    -does the directory and subfolders go here? or just the name of the shared folder with the roms? confused
    -user name and password to my windows user account? or to the shared folder?

    I am running on vista. I am aware that there are some networking options to be tweeked.

    So, Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I run snes9xgx loading from my NAS storage but the principal is the same

    smbip is the IP address of your PC
    smbshare - is the share name of the folder
    smbuser = username set up in windows
    smbpwd = password on windows user (if set)
    you might need to enable simple file sharing on vista

    esentially the info needed is the same as if you were mapping a drive from a nother computer to yours

    just using smbip (ip address) as servername and smbshare instead of sharename
