How did you create the share on the folder?

If you copy other types of files into the folder are they visible on the client pc?

Have you tried putting the my music folder in the shared doc folder,or just making the folder a shared folder in the folder properties.

sorry about the delay in response

i right clicked the folder, selected properties, chose the sharing tab and clicked share this folder on the network.

yes scotty i can see other types of files but not the mp3's

if i make the file itself shared then i can see it on 'my network places' but as a stand alone item. what i want to see is all of my mp3 files in the music folder but it's just not happening!

me again....found that actually having the mp3's in the 'my music' folder means i can see them on the client pc. i originally had them on a custom folder. i have no idea why i can see them in one folder and not the other
