V Tech IS9181 can't see windows 7 shared folders/files

Vtech IS9181 shows my computer running windows 7 as a source but says I need to share the files in order to access them.  I also have a computer running windows xp that shares the files perfectly with the Vtech IS9181.

Have tried turning off virus detection, firewall, enabling echo requests, creating IS9181 account with same password etc but nothing seems to let me see the windows 7 shared files.  Vtech help site is not helpful.

Has anyone running windows 7 been able to share files with the VTech IS9181 and if so how.



Try the steps provided in the article mentioned below and then check:  

Share files with someone: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Share-files-with-someone


Note: Make sure that password protected sharing is disabled.


If the device supports it, you could also setup the sharing through Media Player’s streaming features.



Hope it works.
