    But I don't see my music.

    Key is formatted FAT32. I put some .wav, .mp4 and .mp3 files on the root.
    Try also to add put those files into a directories MUSIQUE

    What do I wrong ?

    Thanks

    Thanks Jim I totally. forgery this point!

    Now it works! But...

    If you remove the USB key and and some musical files on the key when you plug it back, you can't see the new tracks. We must to "rescan" as you told me. Is there any way to do that automatically ???

    Rather than add music by removing USB you'd be better off enabling Samba share on Pi

    After set up access the files with
    Windows via \\IP-ADDRESS-OF-PI
    Mac via smb://IP-ADDRESS-OF-PI

    You do need to rescan in LMS to pick up new music or Settings / Rescan Music Library to rescan automatically overnight.

    Thank you Jim for making me discover a function I didn't know.

    Picore has a lot of ressource but not easy to found them.

    But I like to come with a new USB key, plugin and music !!!!
    That's why it will be great if the update could be done when the key is connected !

    To give you a little bit of guidance to what Jim suggested:

    1) Samba, follow the picoreplayer instructions here (step #3): https://docs.picoreplayer.org/how-to/add_usb_hdd/.

    Note it might not look exactly like the instructions as picoreplayer is changing faster than the documentation can keep pace.

    I work on a windows machine and I setup a network location to my music via samba, then just transfer the files as you would any files

    2) For the auto rescan, I don't use it, but I think you might have to have the plugin enabled (unless it is enabled by default?):

    so if you don't see the menu Jim illustrated, that's why.

    You would have to initiate a scan each time you plugin and constantly removing and reinserting the USB will risk corruption.
    AFAIK most who use pCP with a USB stick put new music onto it via Samba or something like WinSCP.

    My interpretation is that the OP wishes to remove one USB stick and insert another USB stick with different music on it?
    LMS server/study player - LMS 8.3.0 Pi4B 4GB/NanoSound ONE case/pCP 8.1.0 - 75K library, playlists & LMS cache on Sata SSD (ntfs)
    Lounge - Pi2/pCP 8.1.0 > HiFiBerry DIGI+ > Topping E30 > AVI DM5
    Dining Room - Echo Show 8
    Garage - Squeezebox Touch > Edifier

    Spares - 1xSB Touch, 1xSB3, 4xRPi, 1xDAC32, 1xCORE32

    Unless each stick is identically named and formatted I don’t think you can do that very easily at all.
    I think the OP needs to get some experience of what pCP does in shall way call it “classic use case” to find out for himself.

    yea, on reread it does seem like a usage pattern similar to a CD, cassette tape, or 8-Track

    In that case, does AutoRescan plugin still work?
