Shortcut networked drives in My Documents

    I have created a shortcut in My Documents on my Windows MC2005 to a mapped
    drive on my windows XP laptop to share some music content. (I have a home
    wireless network. The MC2005 however is connected using cat5 directly into
    the router)

    When using the MC2005 to browse the music content on my XP laptop I can only
    partly retrieve a portion of the music. The rest of the content is simply
    not there. I've left it to refresh for the whole weekend but still the
    content of the folder does not change.

    Any ideas short of copying all the music on to my MC2005.

  2. Have you added the network share to Windows Media Player's "Watched
    folders" list?
