View Full Version : Problem with SlimServer on QNAP TS-101

2006-04-07, 08:50
Recently got an SB3 and a QNAP TS-101 NAS device pre-installed with SlimServer.

Everything was working fine until a couple of days ago when I was attempting to create a random playlist of all my songs and the SB3 stopped playing music. At the same time, I couldn't get into the NAS SlimServer web browser. So I shut down the NAS and restarted it. Everything seemed to come back up normally...I could access all my songs via Artists, Album names, etc...but I had a problem with trying to browse the music folder from the SB3.

The SB3 showed my directories such as lib, root, etc. I realise that these are the normal directories found on a nix machine. But I was expecting to see the normal music folder directories that I had moved onto the NAS device. So I had a look at the SlimServer web interface...the normal option for browsing the music folder had disappeared.

Then I instructed SlimServer to re-scan and it came back saying I had no music files. So I can’t stream any MP3s to the SB3 now.

I suspect is that I have somehow messed-up SlimServer, but have no idea how to correct the issue.

I had a look at http://www.progressiveav.com/ but could not get anything. Also looked at http://www.progressiveav.com/qnap/updates/ for help but nothing that I could find useful (I know nothing about nix).

Can anyone help? TIA.

Had a very good 10 minute phone chat with ultra238a (Paul) and he got the thing fixed in 3 minutes...not bad at any time of the day but especially on Friday after 5pm! (Does he go home?!)

It was a simple matter of adding folder paths in the Server Settings on SlimServer.

I just want to say a big thanks to Paul.
