[icon-discuss] Re: file sharing and vista

Hi, Chris. I shared music, library, downloads and documents on my braille
plus.
I just can't choose a folder from my desktop through the add network item.
What I have done temporarily is to go into control panel and to network
manager. From there, I told it to search for computers and devices. Since I
changed my braille plus group name from mm to family, the same group name as
the other computers in my household, my computer sees the braille plus.
I have had it create a shortcut which is on my desktop.
I can transfer files as long as I am sitting at my computer, but not the
other way.
That will have to do until someone comes up with something else.

I browsed the network.  but a standard path would be two
slashes/folder name
example
//icon/test  where test is the shared folder on the icon.
You also need to share each folder on the icon.
so select music, then hit the menu key and go to share this folder.
