Welcome to sevenforums, sound asleep.

You need to set your music folder up as shared so she can see it and access it.

The following is from Windows 7, but should be similar in Vista:

Right click on the folder, click "Share with", then "Specific people". That takes you to a box where you are already added in. Click on the down arrow in the box at the top and select "guest" or "Everyone" then click "Add" at the top and "Share" at the bottom. That will give you the link to the folder, and that should do it.

Now she should be able to see the folder and read (get) the files.
