I am wondering if anyone can please point me in the right direction on how to setup the Xbox as a media player?
I have my Xbox hooked up through my router, which is also connected to a PC. Now when I download movies or music to my PC, my Xbox sometimes flat out refuses to see (and play) these files. Sometimes it can take days for the files to show up. This is something I have struggled with since owning an Xbox for the past 3 years. I have Googled every website, every forum, every article, with no solution in sight. It appears that for some bizarre reason, MS have decided to link WMP and the Xbox together somehow, so that the Xbox relies on WMP to feed the library back to the device. Now I'm under the impression that WMP has to "update the media library" for the Xbox to see these files, and it appears that WMP does this whenever it dam well feels like it (hence if its a bad day, the files won’t show up for hours or days). If it does decide to "update the media library", it sits there updating for sometimes 30 mins when I have only put 3 songs in the folder. Can someone please tell me how in the world I get this setup to work?
Anyone else had this issue?
Thanks in advance for your help
