I have my RPi openElec sharing via SMB/Samba. I pick the share up automatically from my MacBook fine but my windows PCs connected to my network do not pick it up. I can not map the share to a network drive (which is my aim, so that I can share it via Plex - some of the videos require too much of the RPi CPU to play in sync)

The funny thing is, my windows XBMC can find the share if I manually enter the network location... smb://ip.add.re.ss

However, I am unable to even manually locate this smb share in the explorer.

Anyone had this problem or have any ideas how to fix it?
