Windows 7: Music folder not sharing

Music folder not sharing

Hi all,

Just wondering if any body has any advice please.
I have a PC in my bedroom which has all my documents stored on an external HDD...I also have a laptop which I use and I share all my main documents over my home network so they are accessible on the lappy. Now I went and bought a tablet pc and wanted to access all my documents but when I navigate to the "my documents" folder over the network all my folders are showing up except "my music".

I double checked on my lappy and its showing up there, just not on my tablet
Not quite sure why that would be?

Has anyone else had any similar problems in sharing folders? If I cant get it fixed i'll have to resort to a good old fashioned usb stick to copy music over

Thanks in advance for your help.
