    OK - so
    \\RONALDS-IMAC\APPLE HDD HTS541010A9E662 Media\Users\ronnie\Music\iTunes\iTunes Music Library.xml
    implies
    hostname
    RONALDS-IMAC
    sharename
    APPLE HDD HTS541010A9E662 Media
    path to file
    \Users\ronnie\Music\iTunes\iTunes Music Library.xml

    In pCP - LMS/Setup Network Disk Mount
    Mount Point /mnt/
    ronsmac

    IP Address
    RONALDS-IMAC

    Share Name
    APPLE HDD HTS541010A9E662 Media

    Share Type
    CIFS

    If you are lucky that is all you will need to mount the MAC from pCP.
    So - try it and see if it works
    If it does then you should see it mount when pCP boots and ssh to pCP should show files under
    /mnt/ronsmac

    If you had to type in username/password on the Windows PC then put the same into pCP

    Although I'm really grateful, it's still a pity that this route is necessary though

    on picoreplayer

    mount point for xml file

    /mnt/ronsmac/Users/ronnie/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.xml

    for iTunes media folder

    /mnt/ronsmac/Users/ronnie/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media
    I now need to make a new image and confirm that all is well.

    I'll take notes
