Hi, I have been using vuze for about 3 years. my main hard drive became full, so I went and purchased a usb desktop hard drive. I am know downloading my content onto the new drive in vuze. My issue is my panasonic viera smart tv will not see the second hard drive when I try to stream over my network with DLNA. I have checked that file sharing is turned on to allow access to the files. When I search the contents with my tv, I can only locate the files downloaded with vuze on my original hard drive.
Any help is greatly appreciated
OK, so you're using your TV's DLNA to access the files directly. However, while you're able to access the files on your internal hard drive, you don't see the files on the external USB hard drive.
You have turned on file sharing, but I'm wondering if you've fully set the permissions on your USB drive so that your TV can access the USB drive. You may also need to set folder and file permissions on the USB external drive. Make sure that Everyone has Full Control to the folders containing your music and videos (right click on the folder, select Properties, select the Security tab, click Edit, click Add, type in Everyone, click OK, tick Full Control, click OK again until you exit the properties window). If you have a large number of files, it may take a little while for all the permissions to update.
You may have already done this, but I figured I'd mention it just to be sure.
