    I have an annoying situation. I have a Zensonics Z500 media player which only easily finds files on the local network when connected to an xp machine. I now have windows 7 ultimate so the best i can do is get it to find the PC and files but the contents are not visible, [unless they are mpegs or wmv NOT AVI] anyway I have installed the virtual xp on the w7 pc. but not sure how to share them so that the media player can find them. I have tried right clicking on the drives in 'my computer' [xp] but sharing is not available. have i done something wrong?
    Is it possible to see shared drives from outside the virtual xp machine from media players? thanks again for any advice
