    I select one track but it plays another!

    Just as the title says, it's so frustrating when I select My Music folder (to access FLAC or MP3) on my laptop for a certain tune, then it plays another in my library despite showing the title of the one I wanted on the screen! It doesn't do this with ripped CD tracks though.

    Also, shouldn't the squeezebox be able to access tracks when the laptop is turned off? Mine doesn't. Is there anything to alter in the settings please?

    Thanks,

    Carl

    If the tracks are on the laptop exactly how should the Touch reach them if the laptop is off ?

    Make sure shuffle is not on.

    Well that's what I wondered too, but I thought a long time ago when considering the purchase of a SQ, that a main feature was to actually access the library without needing the PC powered up. I guess I must have been mistaken.

    Touch has a ligth version of the lms server built in, you can have an usb stick sd card or usb hard-drive plugged into it

    a couple of times, the blasted media monkey downloaded the wrong artwork and i had the same issue because the embedded artwork showed a different artist/album!
