    Has anyone had any issues? I am not able to login to my MBP through Windows 7 (to play my music on my pc, since I have the 5.1 setup there). I've shared and made sure that OS X is allowing Windows connections using SMB and everything, it even appears in my network, but when trying to access it, it says it cannot be found.

    Ideas, thoughts, suggestions?

    I have exactly the same issue.

    Try to type directly in the address bar in windows. You should know the IP address of your MBP then type this: \\<MPB IP address>

    It should work. When you try to login with username and password created on MBP you could still not be able to access it. Type in username: <your MBP's name>/<username> and then the correct password.
