Hi,

I had ripped all my CD's before buying the SB3 and during the rip, I had the ripping SW produce playlists (m3u) and storing them in the same directory as the mp3-files themselves (E:\My Music\<artist>\<album>\)

As I understand it, the Slimserver software does only look for playlists in the directory I specify, and no folders below that directory? At least that how it works in my setup. I've stored the "E:\My Music" path in slimserver where it shall look for playlists and only the playlists in that directory are shown in slimserver/SB3.

My question to the community is if you know of any software I can use to either 1. move the playlists and automatically have them updated to reflect the correct file structure so that the playlists actually work, or 2. I move the playlists manually and I have a SW go through my playlists and update the file paths respectively so that they can play.

I'd prefer option 2.

Anyone?

I'm not sure how well this would work for mass re-naming of file paths in m3u files, but for the occasional playlist that I need to rework, I find:

is very good.

Does any-one know of any software that will auto change/edit directory paths in an itunes.xml libary file.
I have a normal itunes setup, but I copy my "music" & itunes "playlists" across to my Qnap NAS box which does not recognise the playlist contents even though it see's the playlist names.

Many Thanks
Simon

you should be able to use find/replace from any half decent text editor.
