Ok, as Ron suggested I tried to replace Bj%C3%B6rk with Bj%94rk in the file names and this time it worked.

So since I couldn’t find a conversion table online (even though there must be one somewhere), I went to Mathematica and wrote a small conversion tool from UTF8 to Code Page CP850 for Western European languages, which consists of 128 additional “special” characters. Here is the result for the ones which are likely to appear in a file name.

The table format is as follows: A %BB%CC %DD

“A” is the special character
“%BB%CC” is the way iTunes writes it in the XML file
“%DD” is what it should be in the XML file instead of “%BB%CC”

Ron, if you want I can send you the table in a txt file formatted in a way which is easier for you to implement the transfomation rules in mt-daapd.

Perhaps there could be an option in the mt-daapd.conf file where people with ntfs drives attached to a slug could turn the option value to 1 thereby telling mt-daapd how to interpret/translate the UTF-8 paths in the XML correctly?
