I've got SqueezeCenter running very happily in Win XP, and all seems to work fine. My PC is a dual-booter, and I have Ubuntu 7.10 running on my other drive. All my music is stored on my Windows drive, and I can see said drive without any trouble at all in Ubuntu, and access the files without any problem.

I've now installed SqueezeCenter on Ubuntu, and when it asks for the path to my music files, I can't tell it to look at another drive - it just displays the tree structure of my Ubuntu one. Can anyone tell me how I can force it to look on my Windows drive?

Just browse to the folder where your Windows drive is mounted.
Linux/Unix/Mac doesn't know the concept of different drives, their just
mounted somewhere under the "root" / (not /root). Very likely it's
somewhere in /media or /mnt.
