All hardware is well above min specs and drivers are all up to date.When running XP, I share my files to my Xbox 360 using a Microsoft utility called "Windows Media Connect 2" (WMC2).The thing is I'm so close - I can see and play all my files, there's just this bizarre delay in recently added files showing up! (PS thanks kidicarus for your reply)Then turn off indexing service TVersity has proven itself over time.
I currently use my XBox 360 to stream videos from my laptop.
I have come across an issue where the Xbox does not identify a recently downloaded video.
TVersity is fast, reliable, instantanous and as a no impact on system performance.
I'd have to check but i'm sure indexing service as a bigger footprint than TVersity.
When I add a file to one of the shared folders, it doesn't immediately show up on my Xbox.
For instance, I can have a folder full of video files that all show up on the xbox, but if I add a new video to that directory on the computer, it won't show up on the xbox until (usually) the following day....
This has been working great, except for the following (which the meat of my question here): When I add a file to one of the shared folders, it doesn't immediately show up on my Xbox. x64 | OS X CPU Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo 2.93Ghz [T9800 Penryn] Motherboard NVIDIA n Force 730i Rev. Attachment 68837 Now make sure that the folder/files you're trying to access are part of the index. What I finally got to work reliably was removing and then re-adding the shared folder to the "Videos" library. Its a pretty cheezy thing to have to do, but its the only thing I've found that works repeatedly.

Like Etzel, I think there's definitely something broken here.
On the xbox, I would try to open a folder full of files, and end up sitting there looking at the hourglass for 30 sec. Wait to reboot until after verifying folders shared are part of index. The only catch to this method (because there always is something) is that if you add or delete files in that folder which you added to the Libraries, it seems the library will not be updated with those changes. Make sure that "Allow files in this folder to have contents indexed..." is checked. Reboot So I did find a way to get this to work without using Windows Media Player (WMP)... If you open "Computer" (aka My Computer), Music, Pictures, ect.. You will notice that there is a "Libraries" folder in which Documents, Music, Pictures, and Vidoes is listed..
Hard to believe, given that WMC2 was pretty much instantaneous when opening the exact same folder. Now make sure that the folder/files you're trying to access are part of the index. But if you access that folder via the Lbraries (as you can see all the files from that folder there) and then you add, delete or edit files, those changes are updated. this is the same Libraries that WMP uses will you add the its libraries.
To me waisting 15 minutes to delete and add the files back to my library every time i wanted to watch a movie sounds like accepting to buy a cheap a** car for twice the price and then saying no to a free add on that'll turn it into a real race car. If you weight the pros and cons TVersity is really the best solution out there to my opinion Thats a good point, Wyldkaarde, about the footprint of indexing service vs tversity. Like you, I find it a huge pain in the butt to have to remove/re-add my folders every time I want to move in a file. I'm going to leave this post open though in case anyone ever manages to figure this out! I tried all of the solutions mentioned here, but they didn't work.
