    Hey everyone, new here, and hope someone out here can help me. I am trying to set up sharing files between me trusty old x-box (not a 360, but chiped) and my windows7 pc. used to work great, but since my hd crshed and i had to replace it it doesn't. have selected the folders i want to share on my homegroup, set the permissions, disabled password protected sharing, set up norton 360 with correct ip address of x-box. when i start the mediacenter of the x-box it sees my pc and all the folders that i want to share, but still asked me for username and password. Also i can't switch on network discovery. its always turned off. if i switch it on and select save, the window just closes and discovery is again selected as off.
    Does anyone have any idea???

    Hi Zero... I don't have this set up but you might want to check your sharing and especially Media Sharing under:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings

    I believe Win 7's Homegroup function will only work with other PCs running 7.

    Hope this helps.
