    I bought the Kodak digital picture which supports wi-fi. I had no trouble connecting to my secured wireless network by entering the key, but when the frame scanned for my computer on the network, it couldn't find it. I have xp home on my pc. I'm running the windows firewall and file and print sharing has been selected as an exception. I also have adaware, norton anti-virus and spybot tea time running but that's about it.

    I thought there was a setting on the computer that says, allow others to see me, but I can't find it.

    I would appreciate any help. Thanks

    What is the exact model of the picture frame? Maybe there's a clue in the user's manual...

    Do you have file/print sharing enabled on the XP machine? Did you actually share the disk and/or folder you store the pictures in?

    Kodak Easyshare EX811 - The user manual hasn't been that helpful at all. The frame and pc talk through windows media player 11, so I enabled media sharing in windows media player, but the frame doesn't show up in the device list, which I think is related to the frame not being able to find the pc on the network. Is there a general setting that says allow file/print sharing on XP?
