    make sure samba is turned on via the blue panel and check the

    smb.conf is set for your network and group

    the file is in ect/samba

    [global]
    load printers = no
    guest account = root
    log file = /tmp/smb.log
    log level = 1
    security = share
    server string = DreamBOX %h network services
    workgroup = Dream - change this to your workgroup name
    netbios name = %h
    case sensitive=yes
    preserve case=yes
    short preserve case=yes
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY
    preferred master = no ;(These stop the machine being master browser, which means that it doesn't waste time there.)

    [Configfiles]
    comment = Configuration files - take care!
    path = /var
    read only = no
    public = yes
    guest ok = yes

    [Harddisk]
    comment = The harddisk
    path = /hdd
    read only = no
    public = yes
    guest ok = yes

    You should be able to set up a share via the web interface mate.

    Also, I swapped the remote for the genuine one I got with my legit 600, works perfectly, and the clone one works perfectly on the 600 too. I think a genuine remote is around 30.
