    Is it possible to format the USB stick in ext3 or 4 (which preferred?) while still connected to pi?
    Still wondering why vfat is a problem since pi was perfectly able to create slimserver folder and move all files to the USB stick. This would not be possible if the pi had insufficient rights or am i missing something?

    Yes Linux can have many user like any other OS . LMS has its own user in Linux so even if the systtem or root can write to the stick that does not imply that other users have the rigths to do so .

    25k+ tracks here.
    Cache on the NAS isn't an issue.
    OK it may be a liitle faster on a USB stick but not dramatically so and TBH I'd prefer nothing on USB because it shares the same bus as the LAN (or vice versa) on a Pi and is IMHO the Pi's weak spot.
    Pi3 with piCoreplayer music on QNAP TS419p via NFS iThingys/iPeng/Tablets/Jogglers

    FAT32 (vfat) just doesn't support what LMS needs when installing plugins that are not included with LMS. Don't worry about why, you can be assured that it doesn't work.

    Yes you can format your usb stick on pCP, ext4 is fine. But you will have to do that from command line with tools like fdisk and mkfs. I suspect you are a windows guy, you can format your USB stick with NTFS. Last I checked NTFS worked fine with LMS and extensions.
