The latest fix: change 'log on as' to Local System Account in services window for WMPNSS.

-Open the task manager. (ctrl+alt+del)
-Go to the Services Tab.
-Click on the Services button and minimize task manager.
-In new Services Window, right click on Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service.
-Select Properties.
-go to Log On tab.
-if Local System Account is not highlighted, then you've most likely found the problem. Select Local System Account radio button, click Apply and OK, then right click on Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service again and select restart service.

Your xbox 360 should now automatically see your vista pc.

if not, try deleting the files in c:/ProgramData/microsoft/windows/drm, and restarting Windows media player.



This worked for me after I tried literally everything else. Thanks a lot! I registered just to reply to this! It's been driving me bonkers!

ok here is the SOLUTION!!! after hours and hours of hacking..

Start / Run... type: services.msc then OK

Check this 3 services (it's A MUST if you want to detect your device - PS3).

SSDP Discovery Service <<<<< Start this one first Make and make it Automatic (right click properties).already enabled, switched to automatic
Universal Plug and Play Device Host << then this one same as one above already enabled, switched to automatic
Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service <<< then this one... will not stay started, it starts and then it says it had to stop. switched to automatic

if you get any errors like 1068 -79.. etc simple google errors and you will find easy solution.

i got error 1068 that means you need to have SSDP Discovery Service running before starting Universal Plug and Play Device Host

after that use that simple 5/6 step procedure and R'n'R thats it!!!


ps. i have no idea why this services ware DISABLED on my PC.

I found the answer at the following PS3 forum:

This is what worked for me. Thanks a mil mate!

Just created an account to say "Thanks!"
Instructions for use of services.msc worked great, I found one other service that allows the media extender to communicate that in my case had been disabled:Microsoft Media Extender Service - I enabled it and the Xbox 360 came right up. Using Windows 7 and Windows Media Center.
