    Having a problem sharing my mp3s on my pc.

    My mp3's are all stored in the My Music folder for my account. Winamp is set with the media library pointing at that folder, and everything plays fine for me.

    I've also got the My Music folder shared so that my other half has full access to it when logged on under her own account. But for the vast majority of the songs (anything stored in a sub-folder to My Music), Winamp simply skips the track and tries to play another.

    I've specifically added her account rather than just leaving her under the general "User" group on the share options, and ticked all of the permissions boxes to give her effectively the same priviledges as my own account, but it just doesn't want to work. She can see all the files in Explorer, but Winamp won't play them....

    Any ideas what's wrong?
