I have my slimdeveices pointed to my iTunes direcory but also ahve songs stored on a linkstation. The FAQ states:

How do I use multiple folders or disks with my Music Library?
You can create links or shortcuts to other folders and place them in your specified Music Library Folder. The contents of the linked folders will then be part of your Music Library.


Not sure if i am dong this correctly but when I placed a chsort cut to the Linkstation (G:\music) it does not get add the alumns. The tag file is correct and dsiplays the correct number of songs but if I browse alums all I get are those in the iTunes library

what version of the server are you using, and on what OS?
are you running as a service? If so, the link may not be accessible from the
server.

It appears that you are running some version of Windows, if you are running
SS as a service you won't be able to access the network shares via drive
letter. Change the SS service to log in as a named user, and then change
your short cuts to use UNC notation rather than a drive letter.

SS = SlimServer

The link previously given (http://www.slimdevices.com/su_faq.html#troubleshooting-sharedvolume) has fairly detailed instructions. Let us know if there's anything specific you need clarifying.

SS=SlimServer
UNC=Universal Naming Convention eg: \\ServerName\ShareName\FileName

For the service you need to edit the service properties and fill in the
"LogIn as User" section.
