    upgrading raspberry pi from v3 to v4

    Hi,

    I'll get my rb pi 4 4gb in a few days and wonder what files I should transfer to the new pi when setting up LMS? I guess I can't just plug in the old memorycard and it will work?

    You don't say which OS you are using now, but go with a fresh install is my recommendation

    I guess I need to take with me fstab for network mounting and server.prefs for my lms configuration. Anything else?

    Well I don't use a NAS very much these days (used to use NFS on a Qnap TS121) but certainly copy your fstab info.

    I have never done the LMS prefs thing, so can't offer any info there, sorry.

    If you copy prefs you need to remove the Server ID - they are unique
    Iĺd install from scratch keeping the old one online so you can copy stuff across. The fstab can be copied across but donĺt forget to allow the new IP in your NAS
