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

    I have a laptop that I mostly use, it's running Windows 7. I'm trying to set up my iPod so it will connect to it instead of my desktop which is what it currently does, but all of my Music is on an external hard drive that is connected to the desktop.

    I just got a new router, a Belkin Work & Play 600. It comes with a USB port on the back to connect external hard drives to . So I decided to, instead of having to plug my external hard drive into the laptop every time I wanted to access my music, I would hook up the hard drive up to the router and then make the files be available offline on my hard drive. (This way my girlfriend could also access the music from her laptop)

    The only problem is that I can't get the files to be available offline. I tried to right click on them and say "always available offline", when I did this sync center would open and try to sync them, but every single file would cause a sync error because "The process could not be completed because the file was in use by another process". I cannot for the life of me figure out how to fix this, so I need help.



    If you need more information I will for sure be willing to answer any questions.
