Relative Newbie SB owner here.

Was having very few problems with version 5.1 and just
downloaded version 5.1.1 this morning. Now I cant get
slimserver to recognize my music folder. Am using
iTunes and had previously used that for recognition,
but 5.1.1 no longer seems to have that option. When I
do options 'set music folder and chose the folder i
have ":\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\My
Music" I'm not getting anything.

Not real savvy here, so dont know if i'm missing
something simple.

Using Win XP

Thanks.
Nathan

The path in your posting is missing the drive letter.

The trick is to set your music folder to the path to the folder
containing your iTunes Music Library.xml file.

If that's mounted on an external drive, use a UNC path in the form:
\\SERVER\share\path\to\music
