    music now files

    I downloaded music to my computer using Music Now. Can play them through Media Player10 with no problem on the computer. When I go to play them on my Squeeze Box, it says "no album. It will scroll the songs in the file on the player but won't play them. any ideas?

    If these are DRM'd files, then you are SOL. They are scanned and marked (if you
    look at song info). THey will not play since licensing restricts how and when
    you can play them.

    If you can get WMP10 to play out those tracks as a podcast, then you could point
    slimserver to that using the podcast browser included with the 6.1 nightly
    builds. That should work, or other similar workarounds using shoutcast, or
    nicecast in OSX.
