Have you setup the Sonos Desktop controller to look into the music folders you want to access?


In the Sonos Desktop Control application on your computer, you go to Manage---->Music Library Settings, there you can point your Sonos to look into whichever library of music you want it to access.

How do i connect a sonos to bearshare


You can set up your sonos to look up the music in the folders you have bearshare pointed to download your files to. The only downside is that if its not on a network drive and it's on your computer you will always need your computer on to access the files.

How to Stream Music from Windows 7 ? Share Media on Wireless Network


You can listen to your favorite music without having to carry your laptop everywhere by sharing your music library on a wireless network. Here is a tutorial to show how to stream music from one laptop to another. Using this method digital media such as videos and pictures can also be accessed from anywhere easily. By the following method you can listen music or view your photos or movies stored in your computer from different places in the network.

First we'll connect the server laptop to a wireless home network. This laptop has Windows 7 with Media player 12 and it has all the music, videos and media that you want to share. Right-click on the Internet notification area and select 'Open network and sharing center'. Now, click on 'Connect to a network' and from the list of networks, choose the preferred one and connect. Enter the secure network key when prompted.

Let's create a 'HomeGroup'. From 'Network and Sharing Center', click 'HomeGroup' and then 'What is a network location?'. You'll see a window with three options. Select the first one that says 'Home Network'. In the following window, select what you want to share and click 'Next'. Follow the onscreen instructions and Click 'Finish'.

In 'Network and Sharing Center', click 'Change Advanced Sharing Settings' and make the changes. Then go to 'Media Streaming Options' and allow people you want access to your files. Open Windows Media Player, go to 'Stream' and click 'Automatically allow devices to play my media'. The content you chose to share is now on this network.

To access this content on a client PC or laptop, first connect the machine to the same wireless network as the server laptop, using the previous procedure. Vista users can right click and directly select 'Connect to network'. Assuming that both laptops are in the same network, open Windows Media Player and see of you can find the shared server laptop in the left pane.

To find shared media on the network and to share media from the client PC, in WMP, right-click on Library and click 'Media Sharing'. Here, you can allow or deny access to other PCs and find the media you're looking for. Click 'OK' when you're done. Now, the server PC will appear in WMP and other functionalities will remain same. You're now ready to play the music which is stored on the server PC.

Why cant my windows xp share printer w windows 7?


Hi Chris,

Make sure that both Computers are turned ON if you are printing from Win7 through Win xp

Also make sure that the printer is installed on both machines and that the printer sharing is set up, and that both computers are on the same Workgroup.
Also make sure that the Turn On network discovery is activated in windows7 for XP to be able to detect it on the network, and that the File Printer Sharing is also activated, make sure everything in the sharing settings is activated in the network.

I hope that this will help,

I cant use Music Match jukebox on my new PC. Why?


  1. Verify that your music is in the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus folder on your hard drive. Double-click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, or select "My Computer" from the Start menu. Open the C:\\ drive. Double-click "MusicMatch Jukebox." Review the folder to check that all of your MP3 files are inside the folder. If not, search your computer for the files and drag them to the MusicMatch folder.
  2. Turn on folder sharing to ensure the software can access your music files. Open "My Network Places" in the "My Computer" folder. Click "Properties." In the resulting window, click "File and Print Sharing." Check the box next to, "I want to be able to give others access to my files." Click "OK" and close all open windows before restarting your PC.
  3. Check that you have permission to play the specific MP3 files if you are having playback issues. Occasionally, songs purchased through the Yahoo! Music online store using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus have faulty digital rights management (DRM) protection. Burn the file to a CD and then rip the song from the CD as an MP3, which removes the DRM protection and allows the software to play it without restrictions. This is your only recourse, as the MusicMatch store no longer exists. Previously, you could have contacted MusicMatch's customer service to have the song reissued.
  4. Reinstall the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus software. Click the "Start" menu button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen and select "Settings." Open your "Control Panel" and double-click the icon named "Add/Remove Programs." Locate "MUSICMATCH" in the list of available programs and click "Uninstall."
  5. Insert the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus installation disk into your computer's disk drive and follow the on-screen instructions to install the software again. This may resolve problems involving faulty computer files and corrupt Windows Registry data.
  6. Clean any CDs you are trying to rip or record to using the MusicMatch software. Disks with unclean surfaces involving dust or fingerprints are some of the most common reasons for faulty MP3 ripping or poor audio when recording CDs. Use a specialty disk cleaning cloth or a cloth intended for cleaning similarly sensitive accessories such as prescription eyeglasses. Wipe the disk from the middle toward the edge.please rate and comment on this product just by saying how helpful it is.raise the thumb up

Hi, I have two pc running with windows xp operating system. From User 1 i need to access user 2 windows folder and program files folder otherway around also but I can't how? Even if I shared windows folder...


First thing Windows XP Home Edition will give you numerous problems when sharing files, you should consider using windows XP Pro for that sort of operations.

Assuming you have Windows XP Pro installed in both computers:

1 - Create the same user on both computers ( same account name, same password ) blank passwords are not allow between file sharing as per windows xp group policy.

2 - Create a resource to share ( example: C:\)

3 - Disable simple file sharing

* go to control panel
* click on folder options
* click the VIEW tab
* unckeck the use sharing wizard

4 - Make sure that the user that will be used for authenticating between computers have the proper NTFS permissions and the proper access to the shared sources.

5 - Try to connect to the shared sources when asked for username and password type the credentials of the newly created user.

Now you should be able to connect to the shared sources both ways.

If your files are in "My Music" and the "My Documents" is not shared, then nobody can view them from another PC. Try copying the files to your shared files directory and see if you can access them then.

I want to put music from bearshare to my labtop


Goto http://www.bearshare.com/ and download the software, use http://www.bearshare.com/helpfiles/ to help you with the install instructions as well as the user instructions.

You'll need to open up your laptop's firewall settings to allow Bearshare access to it's Peer-to-Peer network. Do not install any optional programs that come with Bearshare and only share files that you have the digital rights to.

Using any Peer-to-Peer program opens up your computer to file sharing so be careful to read through the user guide to protect the files on your computer that you don't want to share.

Network access denied


Follow the steps to Sharing the files

Your computers are already connected to a network — i.e., they’re all already able to browse the Internet using the same router..

1 : Open the Network and Sharing Center window by clicking on the Windows orb in the lower left corner, and then either right-clicking on Network and selecting “Properties”, or opening the Control Panel and double-clicking “Network and Sharing Center.
2 : If your network type is “Public,” you need to change it to “Private”:
  1. To the right of the network name and location type, click Customize.
  2. In the Set Network Location dialog box, click Private, and then click Next.
  3. In the Successfully set network settings dialog box, click Close.
3 : Under “Sharing and Discovery” in the bottom half of the Network and Sharing Center window, you need to turn all the settings from “Off” to “On” by clicking on the down arrow next to each setting, clicking on “Turn on …”, and clicking on “Apply.” But see some pointers below:
  1. For the “Password protected sharing” setting: you may want to leave this “On” or turn “Off” at your discretion. (I turned mine off.)
  2. For the “Public folder sharing” setting:
    1. If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    2. But if you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
4 : You’re done with the Network and Sharing Center window. Close it via the “X” button.
5 : Click the Windows orb at the lower left corner of your computer, and click on Computer
6 :
n the Computer window, navigate to the folder containing the file(s) or folder(s) that you want to share — e.g., “Pictures” or “Documents” or a specific file or folder within. Note: don’t open the folder itself that you want to share — just navigate to the folder that contains this folder.
7 : Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Share. The File Sharing window is displayed. (Click picture for a larger version.)
8 : If you have password protected sharing enabled: Use the File Sharing window to select which users can access the shared folder and their permission level. To allow all users, select Everyone in the list of users. By default, the permission level for a selected user is Reader. Users cannot change files or create new files in the share. To allow a user to change files or folders or create new files or folders, select Co-owner as the permission level.
9 : If you have password protected sharing disabled (like I do): Click the drop-down arrow inside the blank field in the File Sharing window, and select the Guest or Everyone account. Click “Add.” Then for that new account, click on the down arrow under “Permission Level” to change it to Co-owner (if you want anybody to read and modify files) or leave it at “Reader” (if you want other computers to just read but not modify your files).
10 : Click “Share”, then “Done.”


CRITICAL NOTE: If you selected “Everyone” when sharing a folder, you’re also making its contents available to any computer that joins this network. Many households, including mine, have wireless Internet via a wifi router. If you don’t have WEP encryption turned on, then I could just drive up and park on the street near your home, open my laptop, let it join your network via your wifi, and then nose around through your files. It’s particularly important that you have WEP encryption turned on for your wifi network.
