Hi

Have you setup a domain or are you using Homegroups for connectivity to your laptop? Can you post a picture of your Network & Sharing Centre screen?

You will need to pull the media files from the end device rather than push from the PC - hope you can understand that!

This means that first of all we need to ensure that your devices can see the PC and have access to the media files. Have you shared the directory containing the media files?

On your laptop, can you play a media file on WMP that is stored on your PC?

When you say some but not all, can you give more details? Can you play all of a certain type or all from a certain location?
