I recently had a conflicting IP problem with my wireless network and was offline for a couple of days. When I finally had time to fix the problem, which meant resetting my Airport Extreme and reconfiguring my entire wireless network, I re-entered the settings for my Squeezebox V3. Everything loaded just fine the first time around except my iTunes playlists. I use iTunes to organize my music. My Favorites, Artists, Albums, and Music Folded loaded just fine, but not the Playlists. I rescanned Playlists Only, I rescanned new and changed music, but to no avail. Most folders are empty, and some have only a few songs. I have not emptied and rescanned the entire catalog. Is that what I need to do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help in advance.

Where is your iTunes XML library file located? Also is your music folder on the same machine as hosting SS/SC? Where was the IP conflict exactly?

iTunes is a bit of a pain... if you have it set to 'keep my library organized' it'll blank things out if your music folder is offline, disconnected etc. So, SS/SC rescanned your music folder, but perhaps used a 'stale' iTunes XML file, or couldn't find it at all.


HTH!
