Then when I try and play a song I get a message saying
'Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.'
Ive made sure that the file sharing is allowed.
How can I get all the music to appear and why isn't it playing?
The media streaming settings might also make a difference.
Did you add the music to the username/my music file?
It seems to take WMP quite awhile to load up all the songs and make them playable after you download them.
Is your NIC still cutting out?
