Thank you – one line shown..

/Home_music/Al Stewart/Year Of The Cat/Broadway Hotel.mp3

where home_music is a diectory below mp3. I have tried

/mp3//Home_music/Al Stewart/Year Of The Cat/Broadway Hotel.mp3

That’s saying that there is a path called /Home_music which is at the very top of the directory tree. that’s probably not the case. The folder “Home_music” is probably somewhere like /share/hdd/data/public, or /share/hdd/data/public/mp3, right?

If so, the correct path is /share/hdd/data/public/mp3/Home_music/Al Stewart/Year Of The Cat/…

That’s what the / at the beginning means — start at the top of the file system. When you use it from windows as a share, it works because your drive letter is mapped to the folder above the Home_music folder, so from the perspective of your windows machine, Home_music *is* at the top of the directory tree. Not for the nslu2, though.

To make it work, put that file in the Home_music directory. then make the paths look like this:

Al Stewart/Year Of The Cat/…

Since there isn’t a / at the beginning of the path, that means that the file is in the “Al Stewart” directory right under the directory you are in now (Home_music).

That should work.
