How could I go about getting front row to bring in my videos from my windows media center? I have a wireless network and 400 some odd videos I'd like to have access to around the house.
How do I access the shared files on the media center from my macbook? Where do I go?Benjamindaines said:Setup the media center PC to file share the directory with all your movies in it, then access that share from the Mac. Select all the video files, right click and pick make alias.
Get the IP address of the PC (click the connection icon in the taskbar and choose the support tab), on the Mac from finder navigate to Go > Connect to Server and type in "smb://192.168.4.100" <- IP thereAirforce said:How do I access the shared files on the media center from my macbook?

Any clue where to go from here? I've put D: drive on my media center as shared.The finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "smb://my ip address" could not be read or written"

Sorry, typo on my part of there. I've had it as lowercased.Nermal said:It's smb:// not SMB://
If you type SMB:// it'll change it to afp://SMB// and fail.
