I have a MacMini and MacPro. To set up the mini as a music server, I dragged the Music folder from the MacPro to the Mini. Mini runs OS 10.4.11. (Old Mac). Pro runs OS 10.5.9. Have SC 7.3.3 on both. Have one SB3. The SB plays all music OK from the mini, but Playlists always show as empty. I have rescanned everything. Have tried setting location for playlists as same folder as iTunes Music, and blank. Rescanned. Playlists stay empty on Mini. Everything works OK on MacPro. Any ideas much appreciated.

Do the same files in that folder play in iTunes alright?

Yes. All music files play OK in iTunes.

Hold everything ! I nominated he playlists folder again same as music folder. It started a playlists scan automatically, and I let it complete. AND THEN pressed "apply" at the bottom of the screen. I don't know if that was necessary. But now it works, and all playlists appear on the SB3. Sorry to waste anyone's time.
