Hi,

I have my music folder on a mapped networked drive (z:\music). After telling SlimServer to scan z:\music, no albums/artists/genres/etc appear in SlimServer. It's as if SlimServer either can't access the drive or doesn't find any music there.

The PC running SlimServer can access z:\music through file explorer just fine. I've tried reinstalled SlimServer but got the same results.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
grimholtz

is your network drive some sort of NAS and that there is also a path like

\\NAS name\music\

if so use that instead of z:\music

You dont mention what OS you are running, so dont forget to check for permission issues if you have the slimserver service running as a different user account.

Thanks for the reply. OK, I tried that. Same result. Does it matter if there are spaces in the path?

Check permissions. If your SlimServer is running as a service you either have to allow anonymous read access on the share, or have the service run as a user who has permissions to access that share.
