not all codecs will run on the 520 that run fine on 320
« on: November 27, 2007, 10:12:38 AM »

 I have upgraded from a DSm 320 to a the DSM 520 but find all the files that worked won't work on the 520 they are they should work regardless they are accepted file codexs yet half error out with format not supported or ?Unable to to open file error checked them all against the okder unit and they still work there
 also does anybody else have Media Center often on a regular basis and how can I identify a third media center thats runs as well I know that D_link TV Versity and Azerus are running but have no idea what the third one is or why its even there it just ids itself as the same as my computer name Administrator and I am using XP MCE 2005 not sure that would be the third

Can you please list the codecs your video files are using. Audio and Video codecs are preferred.

Also the third one you speak of that is your computer name is more than likely Windows Media Player 11. It also shares music/photo/videos.

Please view this FAQ from the Dlink support website to configure you DSM-320 or 520 to use Windows Media Player 11 as your media server.
