I experience the same problem, with the server on either of two
different machines running W/XP (the music library being on an
interchangeable external USB drive) and SB lvl 5.1.1:
1. When the server runs on my IBM Netvista desktop, the problem is
permanent, i.e., I can't get any music out of my SB. It only "chirps".
2. When the server runs on my HP Omnibook 4500 laptop, the problem is
