    File Sharing... (Win XP)

    I have a home network; my PC and one other in the family room. On my PC, the My Music folder is filled with nearly 5000 mp3's in the following format: ...RickyMy DocumentsMy MusicArtistAlbum TitleSong Title.mp3. As you might imagine, the My Music folder has hundreds of folders and sub-folders.

    I've already enabled sharing on the My Music folder but this had no impact on the folders and sub folders within. I want the networked computer to have access to the entire music library. Is there a quick way to enable file sharing on all the necessary folders? It would be quite an effort to do this to each folder individually!

    I hope the solution (if there is one) is not to enable file sharing on the entire C drive. Don't want to do that. In fact, I really need to enable file sharing on the My Music and the My Pictures directories (folders, all sub-folders and files).

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.
