I have had an Squeezebox for some time now with my iTunes library on an an external hard drive. (in iTunes on my computer, the location of the iTunes music folder is PSP-7000:iTunes:).

Yesterday I downloaded the newest version of the Slimserver software and that says there is nothing in my library. I went to Server Settings and tried rescanning (with and without the iTunes box checked), but it still shows nothing.

What can I do to get Slimserver to scan the correct library? If I need to enter a path name in the Music Folder area, please advise me what I need to put in there, because I tried: PSP-7000:iTunes: and /psp-7000/itunes/ and neither of those worked.

Any help would be appreciated.

You've hit my pet complaint about people's posts. Not stating what OS
they are using!

On my Mac, I think I had to point to /Volumes/ExternalDrive/Folder
rather than just /ExternalDrive/Folder. Something of the sort may
work for you, but not knowing your OS makes it difficult to give
precise advice.
