Try putting the file name in quotes. "robie williams-feel.mp3".
You can also put a \ before any space. robie\ williams-feel.mp3

Check out gmplayer (try to run it)
You will need to add the 'umask=0' option to your /etc/fstab to let regular users access. Search here.

How did you get mplayer? I downloaded and compiled it, and it had an option for creating gmplayer. Not sure how you would get it if you got mplayer precompiled though.
You should be able to use the mp3's on the Windows drive if the regular users can access it.

their I downloaded the MPlayer V1.0.Opre3try2 source.

It was a packge so i extracted it and do with the console:

make install (evrything works fine)

Maybe it cauld come because I have no skin , no?? Or what shoud I do?

you need to recompile with the gui enabled:

./configure --enable-gui
make
make install

make sure to get a skin from the site too.

Recompile with './configure --enable-gui' (i think) instead of './configure'. Use './configure --help' to see the options. You will need to get a skin too, but if that were just the problem, then gmplayer would run but complain about the lack of skins.
