I am not very Mac literate - I set up an SB3 for a colleague of mine, got
Slimserver working and everything was fine.



His music collection grew to the point where it needed to be housed on
another drive. We moved it all over but I have had no success in making
Slimserver see the new drive.



In the 'path to your music' I have tried putting in the drive and folder as
follows: \SEA_DSK\music but that is not recognised.



I believe that I might have to be doing something with a 'symbolic link' but
neither of us know much about those.



The mac is running OSX and there is no Itunes integration required or
anything else out of the ordinary.



I would be grateful for a pointer in the right direction.



Regards to all

Try this :

/Volumes/SEA_DSK/music

In Mac, you have to use /, not \.

If you prefer to use a symbolic link then (in addition to creating one via Terminal) look on VersioTracker for programs that will create such a link. There are some stand-alone (free) programs, and some shareware programs that do this and a lot more.

You can then move the symbolic link (which is just a small file) anywhere you like, and you should be able to treat that link as the required library.

Or, as far as I know, olof's suggestion will work.
