Tom,

I too had this problem with shared directories but in my case I discovered
it was related to permissions. Using the default options, I think
SlimServer Service runs under the SYSTEM account. Until I specifcally
granted SYSTEM with privledges to my shared folders it would not scan my
files (I'm not a believer in setting privledges for EVERYONE under NT so
this was the cause of my problem). Once I granted permission to SYSTEM on
the share, it worked fine for me running as a service. I later changed the
account from SYSTEM to another account because of the log off problem but it
has been scanning files as a service without problem.

Good to know that I don't need any devices. That rules out one possibility.

Thanks.
