I have empty iTunes log files again. With great fear, I upgraded to
5.4, changed a couple of things in regard to the location of the iTunes
files, and bam: empty playlists.

Here's the setup now:
Server running Windows 2000 Server, SlimServer 5.4 on C: drive.
Music is stored on M:\Music RAID drive
iTunes directory is M:\Music\My Music

Desktop running Windows XP, latest iTunes
Using TweakUI, I tricked the machine into thinking that the My Music
directory is stored on the mapped share M:\

I turned on iTunes debugging, triggered a rescan, and here are some
highlights. Currently, I have access to all of my songs if I browse by
artist, genre, or album and I can see every playlist that's in iTunes
but they all say "empty" EXCEPT for the iTunes playlists that only have
Internet radio stations in them.

tell me why it says 'normalized'? That scares me)

widen your focus a bit, its simply normalising the URL to fit a slimserver
standard. the word doesn't always refer to audio, tho not really the word I
woud have chosen in this case.
