Hello,

My problem is im not able to share with WMP, every other program i download VLC, DIVX etc will work but not WMP.

I bought the laptop just before Windows 8 came out and then upgraded to Windows 8 when out, but found alot more of my hardware was not compatible than the Upgrade advisor told me, so decided to downgrade back to Windows 7, since doing this it has stopped the Media sharing (it also wasnt working on Windows 8)

I have tried every problem solve on Google, reinstalled, removed deleted the files and added them back checked all the settings and all are there, I have tried sharing to PS3, Xbox, smart tv other computers so know it is def WMP.

I read somewhere that this can sometimes occur if, for example, you have a laptop that is running both wired and wireless and that disabling one of them sometimes solves the problem.
