Default Can't access Windows shared drives/folders

I've tried: ES File Manager AndrodXplorer Kies Air And probably a few others. This worked for me about 3 weeks ago but for the life of me i can't remember what i used. I can't find anything that works now. Neither ES File Manager or AndrodXplorer will even find the shared folders. My computer won't pull up the IP address that Kies gives me to punch into the browser. Does anyone have an "app for dummies" that any idiot like me can use? I simply want to pull music saved on my shared folders into my phone, wirelessly. [edit] What the hell is up with the formatting on this forum? There were spaces and stuff all in that post and now it's hard to read....

I either use wire or bt to transfer files. Have you by chance using your USB cable to see if some drivers install? Could also try using drop box to upload them from you computer then download them from your phone.

Works fine with USB cable, no drivers install.

What is BT? I don't really want to mess with uploading from computer to a cloud drive or any of that. This is really bugging me because i was able to just pull things off the computer before, and now i can't. Part of it is my fault because i don't remember what i used, but nothing on "my apps" list on Google Play is ringing a bell, either.

Sorry, bt is blue tooth. In will look at a few apps that I have used and see if they might work for you.
Edit: I am not sure what you had and I know you don't remember but I found a bunch of wifi file transfer programs in the market maybe one of those might work for you. Of you do find one or remember can you share? Always good info to know.

Kies Air was recently updated, maybe try it again? Otherwise, the BT suggestion is solid as well, so long as your pc supports it.

I think the only other thing i have with BT is my PS3, don't think that will transfer files over BT as well.

Oh well, i appreciate you guys at least giving suggestions!

Hell, I'd give it a try. It certainly can't hurt. I would google search "Android to PS3 bluetooth file transfer" and see what comes up.
