Ok, what I'm trying to do is this.

All of my music (154GB) lives on my D Drive.

There's not enough room on my C drive to migrate it over, and upgrading at this point in time is not an option

I want to be able to access the music files from my laptop (running Windows 7) and I've set up the required network connections and can "see" from the Laptop, the shared folder on the desktop

Creating a short cut for a music file and dragging this to the shared folder makes the shortcut visible on the laptop, and clicking it triggers the song.

So far so good.


I need some way to automatically create a shortcut for eveyr sinlge music file, and copy/drag the shortcut to the shared folder.

I'm reasonably skiiled in DOS & Visual Basic, but I'm having trouble deciding the best course of action.

I hope this is posted in the correct forum, if not, please let me know and I'll move it.

Actually, forget about this.

I've found out that by simply creating a shortcut to existing WMP Playlists, then moving these to the SharedDocs folder, they are instantly available on the laptop.
