I just installed Slimserver on my PC and I can not figure out how to make it
work with iTunes. I have looked through the entire set of parameters and
can't see any options to allow it to work with iTunes. It discusses this
capability on the website, but I can't find it in the documentation. I am
running Slimserver version 5.01, iTunes 4.1.1 for Windows, 3rd Generation 40
gig iPOD on Windows XP Professional. Can anyone point me in the right
direction to get this setup.
Thanks
Bill

First, confirm you have a file called: iTunes Music Library.xml, located in My
Documents\My Music\iTunes

Then, when you start your server, if you click on server settings, you should
see the follwing items:
Language
Itunes
Saved Playlists Folder
Rescan

If you only see Music Folder, instead of ITunes, then the server is not inding
the iTunes Music Library.xml file. You can try running the SlimServer from the
command line, with --d_itunes as an option. This will show you debug messages
related to itunes integration.
