Thanks for your help. And if anybody at any point does eventually figure out how to use Live, please post back here. I'm still very curious about how to use it.

Go ahead and say it! I won... I'll look into the MSN thing for you. I know there was a way to do it but with the new recent update I dont see it used quite often

Gbridge is awsome. I have no problem with it and the fact that you can preview photos and stream the music within the web bowser is such a plus

You won't be able to share your music directly from your computer with Windows Live. You'll need to patch together a solution.

Or even better, get a Windows Home Server

Your right but with this software

this is just drag and drop and it automatically updates.

I have used the MSN as well. The differene is is that Gbridge keeps it on the remote computer until you call for it. MSN automatically syncs it to your compute but of ocurse msn has to be running for it to finish on both ends.

And that's what I don't understand. When Microsoft says that the Live ID enables file sharing by all users with a linked Live ID over the internet, what are they talking about? You surely don't need a Live ID to share file over a Homegroup, so aside from streaming, what exactly is the purpose of using Live ID for file sharing purposes?
