    I've been looking online, reading here, and even the WiiMC Forums, and to be honest, I simply CANNOT get shared files to show up.

    I am running Windows XP HOME EDITION, and would like to know if anyone could provide me with simple step-by-step answers. [​IMG]
    I've tried looking through guides online and setting up file-shares and etc, and it's just confusing for me, I just can't get it to work.

    Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks. [​IMG]

    wrong section to post your thread...

    and: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=224...p;#entry2802993

    and wow, it toke me 5 min to find...

    Get your pc's ip address (from the cmd line) using configip /all, it is probably something like 192.168.1.1
    Mine was 192.168.1.105 as i have a few pc's at home

    wii setup screen

    Display Name ____ Movies
    Share IP ________ 192.168.1.1
    Share Name______ Movies
    Username____Mungali08
    Password_____PasSW0rd

    everything is case sensitive.
    i did not turn any passwords off, i just use my logon name and password and that works fine.
    I also did not have the shared folder anywhere special it's on an external hdd eg //g/Movies
    It seems to like the main folder shared not just the whole hdd. It will find the subfolders.
    Hope this helps.

    thx Mungali

    Yeah, it took me 3 seconds to find that too, but like I said above, when I read it, I still couldn't get it to work and it was confusing. And how do I choose what folders to use and everything? and what to share and what not to share. .

    I figured it out on my own eventually by trial and error. Thanks, sonknuck23. [​IMG]
