What a strange problem I am having...
I have a desktop running Win XP Home and a laptop running Win 2000 Pro. The two are connected on a network, and have no problems getting along...except for when it comes to MP3's. My entire music library is stored on my desktop (about 2500 songs), but unfortunately my ancient laptop doens't have the hard drive space to store it all. I would like to be able to play songs and/or playlists on my laptop when it is connected to the network, but about 90% of the MP3's cannot be opened by the laptop...it simply says the file cannot be opened. Both systems are running Win Media Player 9, and the desktop has no problems opening whatever I want. The strange thing is that a few, seemingly random, MP3's can be played by the laptop, and the problem is also found in Winamp 3, suggesting that the problem isn't in WMP. The laptop has no problems accessing and using any other network resources, so what is going on with my MP3's???
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
