At least you can view the computer... How and where do you define the workgroup in 7?

I just do it the same way as you do in Vista and XP. I go into the Properties of My Computer and it is located in there..

No i have found out from another forum, where someone got in contact with Ziova.. Apparently Windows 7 sends a incompatible smb directory list status field and Ziova won't be releasing a Firmware Update to fix this.. SO it looks like for it to work Microsoft is going to have to change something..

OR i found this and you could try this, but i haven't tried it yet so not sure if it works.

Looks like unless something changes with Windows 7 on MS's side, its never going to work.
With this in mind, I have given up on SMB and instead decided to use NFS file shares from my Windows 7 machine.
I just installed Hanewin NFS server on my Windows 7 machine (Networking Software for Windows) which is shareware. Only free for 30 days, but I'm sure there are other NFS servers about that are probably free if you don't want to pay.
Once installed, I went to the "NFS Server" under Hanewin in the start menu and went to the exports tab. From here, I clicked the "Edit Exports File" button and created my NFS Shares. In my case they were:
e:\Movies -name:Movies -public -readonly
"e:\TV Shows" -name:TV_Shows -public -readonly
e:\MP3 -name:MP3 -public -readonly

(Note: I deleted the example shares).
Once created, I just saved & closed. Then hit the "Restart Server" button. If you got it right, it will show each of the NFS shares in the window. This should be all the configuration you need to do on the Windows 7 machine (I didn't touch any other settings in Hanewin). The program runs as a service, so should start with windows when you boot.

Now on the Ziova CS615, you go into the Setup, then the Network options. Right at the bottom, you can select to add NFS shares. When it prompts you, just put in the IP address of your Windows 7 machine (in my case 192.168.1.1). Then when prompted for the share name, put in one of the ones you have defined on the NFS Server. In my case, the first was Movies. Then add any others (mine were TV_Shows and MP3).

These should now show up on the main menu of the Ziova and you can browse them just like SMB file shares (except it is faster and without the hassle).

I've only just done this, so haven't tested it much yet, but it definitely works so far. I hope this helps some of you guys, as I was about to go and buy a new NMP that is Windows 7 compatible, so this discovery has saved me a few hundred bucks!

One Final note: If you make a mistake and want to delete an NFS share from the Ziova main menu, just highlight it, then press "ALT" and then press "STEP" on the remote.

hi guys,

this is not a ziova-problem, it's windows-7 related.

look here at a microsoft technet entry where the issue is already analyzed: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...b-c0c882a649b0

I still hope M$ will fix this issue soon, there are several mediaplayers which are affected, not only ziova's ...

but, another possibility: ziova player tries to authenticate with "cs-505" - does anybody know the password which correlates to this user? perhaps it works if - instead of sharing with the guest-account - we set up "cs-505" as user on the computer and set there the correct password ...

I've also asked this question to ziova (--> http://www.ziova.com/forum/index.php...ndpost&p=36108), but it was never answered. ):
