I've just received my new SB Boom, bought from Amazon for $273 with free 3-day shipping.
First impression was exceptional great audio (compared to my other portable audio devices). However, it is not so convenient, portable-wise, as Sony VGF-WA1, and somehow it's too difficult to set-up than SB Duet. I was able to get Internet radio streamings through SqueezeNetwork (from my ReadyNas NV+), but still unable to access my music folders on this NAS which were accessible from my SB Duet. In Music Library, there are only 2 options: MP3tunes Music Locker and My Rhapsody. Am I missing something? How can I get to my music folders on the ReadyNas NV+? TIA.

If you see that menu you are connected to SqueezeNetwork, not your
ReadyNAS. Hold left to disconnect, then choose your server from the
list.

Also, you must upgrade to squeezecenter 7.2.

Thanks for your prompt replies.

Also, you must upgrade to squeezecenter 7.2.
I did.

If you see that menu you are connected to SqueezeNetwork, not your ReadyNAS. Hold left to disconnect, then choose your server from the list.
I did. It went through 5/6 steps:
Squeezebox Setup (6 of 6)
Connect to NAS1 (192.168.1.4)
Press <Right>, "Connecting ..." appears, then "SqueezeCenter needs to upgrade, Left to go back ....
It's strange since SqueezeCenter was already upgraded to 7.2. By the way, this Boom does not appear as an option in Choose Player of SqueezeCenter, but it does in SqueezeNetwork!
What am I supposed to do next?

Are you sure you are running 7.2? Did you install our official build?

Yes. There was an announcement at the bottom of SqueezeCenter about the availability of 7.2 and I clicked on it to upgrade.
It shows:

SqueezeCenter Version: 7.2 - 22900 @ Tue Aug 26 11:27:23 PDT 2008 - Windows Vista - EN - cp1252

Windows Vista? You said you were connecting to your ReadyNAS. I think you may need to shut off the SC running on your ReadyNAS and make sure you're connecting to the SC on your Windows box.

I upgraded my ReadyNas to the latest firmware 4.1.3 which included SqueezeCenter 7.2 and now everything works as it should. Thanks for all your helps.
