    How exactly does it search for iTunes files?

    Could anyone suggest why SlimServer is not finding some of my iTunes
    files in the following scenario?

    iTunes settings
    ---------------
    iTunes Music Folder = z:\music
    "Keep iTunes Music Folder organized" - checked
    "Copy files to iTunes folder when adding to library" - unchecked

    SlimServer is set to "Find iTunes Library Automatically". It
    successfully finds and plays files in z:\music. However, I've recently
    added some additional files which are in Y:\Replay Radio\Recordings. It
    doesn't see these files.

    I added the files to iTunes using the menu option File=>"Add Folder to
    Library".

    iTunes can see and play these files without any problem. The iTunes xml
    file entries seems fine. They all correctly point to the relevant files
    on the Y: drive.

    I set up an iTunes playlist which includes files from z:\music and files
    from y:\Replay Radio\Recordings. SlimServer sees the playlist and it
    sees the files from z:\music. It doesn't see the files on the Y: drive.

    If I create an iTunes playlist that includes only files from the Y:
    drive, SlimServer sees the playlist but reports that it's empty.

    I've tried stop/start/rescan etc. with no luck.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    Hi Keith,

    Is it possible that the permissions for the Y: drive prevent the SYSTEM
    account (which is how the SlimServer is running) from accessing the
    files on that drive?

    That would explain the problems you are seeing.

    Holy shit! You mean to tell me that you actually managed to get iTunes
    playlists into your Squeezebox list? I've completely fucking given up
    trying!

    Congratulations!

    wow. if I didn't know RR was in the US I'd give you full credit for the
    brilliant Sarcasm all Britons are known for. iTunes playlist should definately
    show. If you are having an issue with that please share those details and
    we'll try to help.
