Hi everyone

Having used SlimServer with iTunes on a Mac for ages, I recently decided to
move it over to a PC.

So I installed the latest version of iTunes on Windows XP, downloaded the
latest SlimServer and installed that.

The player can recognise all my iTunes songs fine, but it can't recognise
the playlists. So if I create a playlist in iTunes, it no longer appears
automatically on the SLIMP3 as it once did with the Mac.

I've played with the saved playlists setting but to no avail. The most I
seem to be able to do is create a playlist using the SlimServer web app -
then it recognises the playlist.

It all felt much more automagical on the Mac. What am I doing wrong?

thanks

Toby,

Make sure that your Server Settings indicate that the SlimServer is
using your iTunes Music Library. It may have defaulted to off for some
reason...
