Reply To: Initial setup of Firefly with WHS



You could map the share directory on any system and use any ripping application to rip your music and move it to that location. I generally rip in iTunes just because I like the way iTunes handles the directory hierarchy.

That said, if you rip it in iTunes it’ll add it to your local library and copy the files to your WHS share which will add them to Firefly, so you’ll want to remove them from your local library if you want to rely on playing solely through Firefly.

Generally I rip using iTunes to a local folder then move all of the folders to the network share once the ripping is done, but there’s no reason why ripping right to the WHS box won’t work (make sure you have PP1 installed on your WHS box though due to the pre-PP1 data corruption issues in WHS).
