Windows 7: want downloaded files to be shared on network

Windows 7
want downloaded files to be shared on network

I have a directory on my computer that is shared on the network and more importantly read by wd media player live.

However when I download a torrent (mostly the latest ep of 30 Rock for my wife!) it does not have read access and I have to manually change it.

How do I change this so it is autmatically available on the network when it is downloaded?

thanks, Phil

Most of the time you are going to have to do it manually becuase torrents come compressed.

So what you are going to have to do is make a shared directory and make a downloadable directory.

One you are done uncompressing the torrent file, you just have to move the .avi or .mov however the video file is in into that directory.

on that folder you want shared... just make it access to "everybody" they are just videos right, nothing really secretive about them. right click, sharing >>> advance sharing.

thanks for your reply
actually they're not compressed at all, not the files I download anyway which are mostly US tv shows we dont get her in oz
does this mean I still have to transfer the downloaded file into the shared directory rather than download directly into it?

Hi phil170258, have you tried putting the downloaded file in it's own folder and share that folder on your Network with your wife?

hi ...
Jacee is right.
Just share your folder consist of your donwloaded files.
And share it to "everyone".

Hope it's work
