    DLNA and Media Share - DX and Comp

    I am trying to view files on my computer through wifi but am having trouble getting passed this one part. I enabled file sharing on my computer and in my DroidX through "media share" I follow the steps until it asks me to "Enter Authentication info" user name and password. It finds my computer just fine. IP shows up correct. I try everything for user name and password but I keep getting "Logon failure". My comp does not have a password. The shared folder is not password protected. The only thing that has a password is my wifi network and I already tried that password. Does anyone know what Im doing wrong?

    I have the exact same issue - I have a PC on my wifi network that I share stuff off of all the time with mine and other's laptops, but I get the same "Enter Authentication Info" prompt, and have no idea what to enter. Any suggestions?

    Hmmm, I didn't run into that authentication prompt. Try setting the permissions on your folders to everyone with full control. That seems to be the only thing I have done different. Sure worth a shot.

    When I use the DNLA app to connect with windows media player through my homes wifi I can see the files in wmp library just fine. I followed this article:

    Making Your PC a DLNA Certified Media Server - Agoraquest - Sony Forum, News, Reviews


    But I want to be able to see a shared folder, NOT in the wmp library, through the "media share" app.

    DLNA will only let you see stuff WMP has catalogued, if you want to see a shared folder, you have to go through EStrong file explorer...

    Usually if you enter your user name and password for the computer you're accessing you can get straight to anything you have shared...

    That's what it ended up doing. EStrong works great and does everything I want.
