    Xbox Can't Find Media Center

    Hey guys, I'm having a issue with Media Center on Windows 8. My Xbox console can't find the Media Center, but on the same network I have a Windows 7 PC and with this one Xbox finds Media Center and works normal.

    So, anybody knows this problem? The sharing and network settings on Win8 are the same as the Win7.

    I had to install the Windows Media Center extender on my Xbox in order to play movies through it. I already have a media PC so I was just doing it on the Xbox to see if it worked.

    You can access it through the Xbox settings, they give me a code which needs to be typed in when you set it up to work with Windows 8.

OKAY. I have a Surface Pro with 128 GB storage so I want to conserve space by using my 64 GB micro SDXC card which is seen as a removeable drive. It is so small and sticks into the pro to where you can't see it. It does not stick out so I just leave it in there all the time. How would I get...
