  • Post your kodi debug log - go into Kodi > Settings > LibreELEC > System, then in the right hand pane scroll to the bottom of the list and click on the "Upload latest Kodi log and configs" item, then paste the link.

  • I have the exact same problem. I'm trying everthing since days and nothing works.

    same workgroup, right IP, right name of the shared folder, the shared folder is set to my windows log in account, account name and password are also correct

    => permission denied

    I don't know what i can do else...

    Is there a problem with the windows features? smb1 is off

    Is the windows firewall blocking it?

    Is there a problem with the router? (i can easily ping from windows to pi3 kodi)

    I miss those old smb1 days. plug in and it works...
