That's pretty much what I have. Different mount and letter but
fundamentally I map a drive letter to the root of my music on the Linux
platform...

Cheers,

James

what is your audio directory set to, what is the mount point you have for
samba,
and how is it mapped to windows?

I have /mnt/mp3 mapped to j:\ and I get double counts becuase the linux
conversion doesn't work when you have a root directory. I have a patch that
I
use for myself becuase everytime I've tried to fix this in the server its
been
removed later.

I think I have it to a point now where it shoudn't bother anyone else, so
might
try to get it back in.
