Blu-ray wont connect to PC server

How do I get my bluray to connect to my networked pc?
I have them both hardwired into my router.

While I can 'view' the pc on the bluray in 'photos', 'video', 'music' and 'connection server settings' - it will not connect.

It tells me, "The server is currently starting up. Please wait. Startup may take a few minutes".

Then it says, "! Cannot Start Server. Wait for a few moments, and then select the same server again or turn the media server's power off and on".

Restarting the pc does nothing.

Re: Blu-ray wont connect to PC server

I had the exact same issue.  "Server won't connect".  Just fixed it.  Turned on "Windows Media Player" then went through the options to allow it to share with all devices.  Went back in to my Blu-Ray and it could see my PC once more.  Hope this helps...
