    Media Folder is only showing /mnt and as soon as I add "/LMSfiles/mymusic which is the name of my music folder on the USB external drive hit rescan it's back to /mnt
    Browsing for Folder only shows home and mnt none of the folders on the USB drive.
    Back to where I had been before, so frustrating.
    Can you supply screenshots of your pCP USB drive mount point, and the folder that LMS scans, as in my screenshots below?

    The two paths I've highlighted in your post are different they need to be correctly entered in LMS settings/basic settings.

    Use the Browse button to browse to the music folder, don't try to enter it by typing it.

    So Good Morning to you folks in Lancashire, hope I am right, freezing morning here in Melbourne 7║C too cold for me.

    OK last night when I looked at your Screen shots I knew that mine should be something similar but they are not, far from it. I don't know how far I have to go back if possible without starting from scratch again, but if needed so be it SD cards are cheap enough now. So kidstypike can you guide me from here on and hopefully I will end up with a working LMS server.
    I have attached my screen shots, but I don't know if they are there for you, I can't see them here
    Regards Bill

    Your screen shots are not attached. I think you're issue is in the mounting of the USB drive in piCorePlayer. But the screen shots showing that mounting will be useful to diagnose.

    p.s. You don't need new SD cards if you need to start over. You can rewrite a new piCorePlayer image to the existing SD card with no problem.

    Installing rPi

    It worked this time I can see it.
    Regarding not needing a new SD card, when I was stuffing around installing PiCoreplayer and getting all them Errors, when I tried to do it again with the same SD card it told me not enough room on SD card and that was on 32GIG and 64GIG cards its now on a 128GIG SD card.

    The Folder on the USB drive that contains my music including many sub-folders is Named: mymusic

    I've no idea where you're up to ATM but I've set out simple instructions below starting with a freshly formatted 16GB micro SD card. I'll leave it up to you how you get to this point.


    Burn pCP 7.0.0 to a new or freshly re-formatted 16GB SD card.


    Insert card, attach network cable & USB drive to Pi.


    Power up Pi.


    Find IP address of Pi and enter it into a web browser address bar, and press enter.


    "Main page", scroll down to bottom of page and click the "Beta tab", dismiss warning.


    "Main page", Click "Resize FS", select 2000MB (minimum if installing LMS) from dropdown box.


    Click "Resize", (takes a couple of minutes).


    "Tweaks" page "Host Name" you can keep pCP or rename, I renamed to pCPdemo, press "Save". (Reboot).


    "LMS" page, under "Install and enable additional file systems", click "Install".


    "LMS" page, under "Pick from the following detected USB disks to mount", enter a name, this can be anything you like, it's just an identifier, keep it simple, I entered "demo". Tick the "Enabled" box. click "Set USB Mount".

    "LMS" page, click "Install LMS". Once installed click "Start LMS", if started you should see a green tick and LMS is running. (At the time of writing this installs LMS v8.1.1).


    "LMS" page, click "Configure LMS", this may or may not open at a "Wizard", mine didn't, it opened at the "Basic settigs" tab.


    Enter the path to your music files on the USB drive by clicking the "Browse" button alongside Media Folder".


    In the pop-up window, expand "mnt", expand "demo", select your music files folder. This will enter the correct path into the media folder box, no need to type anything, close the pop-up window.


    Repeat for playlist folder if needed, or leave blank.

    Click the "Rescan" button,

    Installing rPi

    Thank you very much, I will give this a go
    Cheers

    Just one more question, regarding the "Reboot" is that just turning off the rPi or dose it need to actually disconnect the USB drive from the rPi.
    I wouldn't so, just making sure Sorry
