Empty folder with SMB –
Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum but i find it very instructive.
I tried to stream media over my network with sms via smb, but it don't work. I'm on Vista. I shared some folders with movies and photos inside for testing but when I open them in sms they are all empty. The network must be ok because I can see the shared folders, but something must be wrong. I suspected my wifi connection, but with rad host it work pretty well. I probably stick with rad host, but it would be great to solve that problem.
I don't use Vista myself, but I do know that even under WinXP that I use it is possible for files stored inside a folder to have stricter fileshare permissions than the folder itself. And for such cases such folders may be visible in a fileshare client, but when trying to look inside those folders the content (or some of it) is invisible.

Perhaps you should try this too, setting fileshare permission individually for a couple of AVI files, to check if they are then visible in SMS.
