Hello all,

i have a problem with the option "music folder". if i use a path on my local harddisc, slimserver accepts the change of the music folder option. but if i use a directory on my external usb HD, slimserver begin to scan the folder (hd activity led is blinking) then stops scanning after 10 seconds and also stops the service.

when i now restart slimserver, the music folder path is still the old. it works fine with other drives or paths, like network drives.

is this a known problem or bug? how can this problem be fixed?

best regards
andre

sounds like a permissions error. Tell the service to run as you.

ok . i tried all posibilities to start the service, nothing changed.

but i tried something out.
(e:\ is the external usb hd)

use e:\ as music folder: slimserver changes the folder = functional
edit: not really.. if i want to access the audio folder, the slimserver is stopped. all other directories are accessible and working

use e:\audio as music folder: slimserver stops service as described above?!


im confused, any ideas?
is there any logfile, where i can find the reason why the service is stoped?
