I recently brought a new computer and when i try to link my Xbox 360 to my external hard drive using windows media centers extender option (what everyone uses) but i get this error after 2 steps and it wont connect no matter what i do.

Things i have also tried: disabling all my firewalls but it still didn't work.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance. Thanks, Antp

  • well, when upgrading the computer the old HDD is now used as a secondary HDD, this HHD had the settings to connect to the Xbox 360 media centre and it worked fine. now with the new hardware I encounter configuration errors every time.
