windows 7 is supposed to play media on other computers on the network.  the first step is to add a device in devices and printers.  but my computer does not see the other computer.  it sees it in network but not devices.  one is windows 7 ultimate, the other is windows 7 home premium.  both have allowed streaming.  I even put them in a home group. still can't see them in the device window. the firewall is off for both computer. no other firewall is running.  how can I add my computer to device list for media to play.

sorry I figured it out.  add a device is not the place to go dispite what microsoft said.  the devices appeared in media player after I created homegroup.  should have shown up just by being on network together.
