I am not quite sure what happened, This has been working fine for months and now my GoFlex Home 2TB has a connection to all our computers but not to any of the media players in our house. It shows up in the list of devices but it does not have GoFlex icon.
I can login and see all the shares.
The GoFlex is hooked directly to our router.

The Goflex home shows up in 2 ways on your network. One is as a network device just like a computer. The second is as a media server broadcasting media files to any device on your network. I run a Serviio media server on my laptop so it also shows up twice.
Maybe the media server on the Goflex has stopped, so the first thing to try (if you haven't already) is to reboot the Goflex (power off and back on).
Second, try a reset . There is a little hole on the left side of the Goflex (looking from the front) push a thin piece of wire in to reset, but only hold it in for a few seconds. If you press the tiny button inside for 15 seconds the Goflex will reset to factory settings and all your user accounts will be wiped.
If that doesn't fix it, try to figure out what changed when it stopped working.
Maybe in your router settings UPnP was switched off?
Maybe in the Goflex preferences UpnP configuration was disabled?

I am still not having any luck and it just doesn't' make any sense!
I have factory reset my router and I have do the over 15 second reset of the GoFlex. I am seeing my files on my iphone, I can login on the internet and see my files but I can't access the files from any of our sony media players (we have 3, 2 different models). I have checked the UPnP settings on the router and in the My preferences section of Seagate share.
Just not sure what happened to my knowledge nothing has changed!

OK now when I restart the GFHome the Icon reappears on the Sony media player for a few second and then it defaults back to a standard icon. If you click on the standard icon it says the server is starting up please wait....
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!!!!
