    windows 10 home 64bit

    only one usb drive not being able to share to xtreamer mediastreamer

    I am using windows 10 home (64bit) since a week after official realease (, upgraded from win8.1)
    I have quite a few internal and external (usb) harddrives attached and share them via windows-shares (samba) to my xtreamer mk1 media player box. This works fine on most drives.
    Some didn't work at first but i got that right with (re)editing permissions to "everyone" (read+write). also edited the security tab owner setting, whan tat setting was wrong. Everything but ONE usb drive (in my set-up it is the L-drive) is now sharable to my xtreamer box. The L-drive persistently does not let itself be shared, even though i have repeated all the steps that got the other drives sharable.
    (sharing wizard & advanced sharing w/ permissions, same ownership as the working drives, edited to my win10 ms user account, share to 'everyone' with read and write permissions etc etc)

    Nothing helps, this particular L usb drive is seen in xtreamer list of network media shares but cannot access, it asks for username and password and fills in 'guest' as user.
    *(I have set password protected sharing to OFF.)
    I tried logging on with both fields blank, with 'guest' and my win password, with win ms accountname and password, with only 'guest' and blank password. - nothin helps, i get a consistent "logon fail" and i cannot access this particular drive from xtreamer box.

    It is not my most important drive for wanting to share on the xtreamer media player box , but i still want to be able to acccess it via shares.

    Am i missing some vital setting or permission ?
    Plse help....,

    windows 10 home 64bit

    hi. I can also not access another USB drive the smae way on xtreamer, as it was also not connected during upgrade from win8.1 to win10. this seems to be a ownership/permissions issue , i have treid everything to correct this but to no avail. these two ub drives keep calling for a net id login to access the drive but fail to login on any login i type in there, including two blank login entries (id and password). evebn the win10 windows account id and pw dont work. plse help, this is very annoying.

    If it is only happening with xstreamer, then you probably are better off asking in the forums at Official Xtreamer Forums Also Windows uses SMB, which is a form of Samba, but not actually Samba. SMB allows windows to communicate with Linux servers that are set up as file shares.

    This explains more about Windows SMB. Server Message Block - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    i already searched the xtreamer forum but i'll post a thread there on the forum , as you suggest.
    i thought i'd start at win10 forum as the problem only occurred once i upgraded from w81 to w10, having used w7 before 81 also with xtreamer successfully with smb shares.
