External Hard Drive Files not playing

Postby j2jbb » Thu Aug 28, 2014 8:04 pm


Hoping someone can help. Not sure why I'm unable to play files from my external hard drive any more. I had reformatted my PC recently, and now the PS3 media server can't play files from my external drive. It had worked before, so I'm not sure what settings I need to change on my PC to get this to work. I'm using my android device as a player, it can see the external drive and can browse through the files; but when I try to play the file, it won't. I can play files fine on my local drive. I've added the pms program to the firewall exception once and it worked for a bit, but then stopped after I either rebooted the pc or device. I've also tried removing and re-adding the drive from the navigation/share settings. These "solutions" don't seem to work anymore...
If anyone could help out, that would be greatly appreciated.

Would you be able to please give me the model number of your external hard drive, so I can be more particular while trying to help?
Check your BIOS to whether the drive is recognized there. Might you be able to provide for me some more insights about that?
