1dude1, your thread has been moved to the separate thread from the one you had posted it to.

Of course it's possible. The only thing is: which methos is most comfortable to you. You can use Windows file sharing using Samba, use a Web server, FTP server, scp access and more. You have all the options if the laptop can access (for example ping) the desktop machine.

As mara has said look into samba. I actually have a samba file server at my house that keeps all my files. All my xp laptop has to do is put in the password and off I go. Should not be too difficult. just made a directory call shared. made samba aware of it. gave the permissions and I was done.

Samba is total overkill for the task you're describing. Put an FTP server like Cerberus, on Windows. I don't know exactly how to set it up, but it's highly rated freeware, and Windows has to make it easy.

Once it's running, use gftp or any other ftp client on Linux to copy the files over.

You don't. Audio CDs don't have a valid file system. You can play them (with about all popular players) but you can't mount them.

As said you do not mount an audio cd. If you are having problems playing a audio cd you might have to change some permissions. the easiest way to do so would be chomd 644 /dev/cdrom. This should give all users read rights.
