A couple of days ago I installed XBMC (12.2) for the first time, on a laptop running Ubuntu (10.04), just to have a play around with it. I wanted to be able to access two other devices on my network from the software:

- pc running Windows XP with USB drives attached
- WDTV Live with external USB drive

Using SAMBA on the laptop I can browse shared directories on both of these devices. When trying to browse video files on the storage attached to the WDTV device via XBMC everything works fine. However, when trying to browse mp3 files stored on USB drives attached to the Windows XP pc I'm able to navigate to the workgroup, then able to select the pc device which shows all the shared folders but when I subsequently click on one of the folders I get the message "Working" and then nothing else happens. The "Working" message is displayed indefinitely and the only way I can break out of it is to bring up the Ubuntu console (ctrl alt F1) and then kill xbmc.bin. Is there something else I need to do in order to access files on a Windows XP pc?

Check the debug log. Also 12.2 isnt supported anymore, 12.3 is current stable, with v13 beta being very stable for me.

My Add-ons, only available for XBMC:
Steam Launcher|Music Party Mode|Reboot2oOS|Triple J Radio
