Sharing Media with PS3

I have upgraded my notebook to 7 Business edition. And before when i was using Vista i have always been able to use the sharing files feature to stream media and play on my ps3. I have no idea why after i installed windows7 it wouldnt let my ps3 find my notebook. I have already set the sharing option on the "Video" folder. And sometimes the PS3 will recognize my notebook, but for some reason, it won't be able to access any files. It will display that the file is corrupted. And then after a few minutes, the ps3 will not be able to recognize my notebook again.

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this problem? I am using DD-WRT160N router with custom firmware (i forgot which one).

thank you everyone in advance!

Hi Bkcchung,
You may follow the steps mentioned below.

To share the files and folder from PS3 follow the steps given below:

Set up the proper equipment

To stream your media, you need the following hardware and software:

• A wired or wireless private network.
• Either another computer on your network or a device known as a digital media receiver (sometimes called a networked digital media player). Digital media receivers are hardware devices connected to your wired or wireless network that you can control using your computer—even if your computer is in another room.

Turn on streaming

To turn on media streaming on your home network in Windows Media Player, do the following:
1. Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Player.
If the Player is currently open and you’re in Now Playing mode, click the Switch to Library button in the upper-right corner of the Player.
2. Click Stream, and then click Turn on home media streaming.
Turn on home media streaming won't be available on the Stream menu if streaming is already turned on.
3. On the Media streaming options page, click Turn on media streaming. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
4. Click OK.
