    I have Vista and 30gb of music on a NAS drive. When I told WMP to monitor
    shared folder with the music on it; it started building library and gave me a
    window that stated that I could close it but the build woud be slowed as a
    result. I did not want to slow that down, the problem is based on the current
    pace it is working my library will be built in about 14 to 16 days.
    This seems really crazy, I am wandering why it takes so long. Is this normal?

    Thanks Neil
    So OK, I will just wait weeks for finish.

    I just noticed a new little icon in the tray of my other PC XP Pro when I
    clicked on it a window popped up that said the other PC is requesting access
    to the music files on this PC do I want to allow this and when I did say yes
    my hard drive started going nuts and the system slowed down I was not able to
    find how to stop the actions so I rebooted. How do I manage the access
    of/from the XP PC now? Do you know. I didn't put the XP PC in my watch
    folders list.
    I guess I am just a WMP newbee.
