View Full Version : Issue entering file path for music/playlists

I have my music and playlists stored across a Windows network with shares turned on (and working fine for normal file sharing). When using 6.1.1 of slimserver, I get an error when saving a path change saying that the directory I entered is invalid. This is regardless of whether I specify the network path or the mapped drive path. I've never had this problem before using networked drives.

The only thing unique is that I cleared and saved the paths with nothing in them before trying to enter these paths - so now the program has no pointers to music/playlist directories. It seems that once I cleared the path and saved it, it wouldn't accept these new paths. Known bug?

Make sure that slimserver.exe has rights to the network drive. See the FAQ's in the software itself or do a search for topics that I have participated in. I had the exact same problem. You have to grant slimserver access to the network drives via Control Panel/Adminstration/Services before it will see the drives.

Even then, I had to enter the network map as opposed to the drive alias (K:).
