Error: DLNA Protocol Error 7531 (when streaming content from a WD network drive to PlayStation 3)

There can be an intermittent issue when streaming content from a WD network drive to a PlayStation 3. You may get a DLNA error message: DLNA Protocol Error 7531.

First, make sure that all your connections are working correctly. Then navigate to the PS3's Media Server: Settings -> Network Settings -> Media Server Connection. Disable the Media Server Connection, back out of the menu, then go back to the Media Server Connection and Enable it again. This should fix the issue. However, you may need to restart your DNLA service as well.
