    I have this weird issue.

    When i copy the library.xml file from my PC based itunes to the NAS (DS-207), the file does not seem to be scanned (see d9 log extract below).
    The file is found OK. – but not scanned.

    But if i make a new iTunes library in //nas/music/itunes1 folder it is scanned, and playlists in it is found. (=half way there)

    My problem with that is that mt-daapd then wrongly seem to think the music is in the //nas/music/itunes1 folder, wheras it is actually in //nas/music/MP3.
    (it translate wrongly)..again please see the d9 log extract below.

    Any help is much appriciated:
    On my old NAS (god old NSLUG), all i had to do was to export the library file from the PC to the NAS, and i has all playlists. I do not seem to be able to get that going here.

    The end result is it finds the playlist i the /music/itunes1/library.xml file, but it’s empty.

    As mention, playlist1 exsist on mt-daapd, but it is empty. i guess because firefly looked for the music in the /music/itunes1 path.

    That’s it.
    I’ve left out some 10.000 pages of log, but a search for ‘Library’ and ‘Playlist1’ essentially turned out the above.

    thanks for any suggestions

    They have to be called “iTunes Music Library”, or “iTunes Library”, to avoid trying to scan arbitrary xml files as iTunes files and slowing the thing down.

    (not sure what this means, the ‘local’ iTunes library base is /music/itunes1, but the actual music is at /music/MP3)

    Then the xml file has to be in /music/MP3, not in /volume1/music.

    It can’t tell what E: on your workstation corresponds to. The only guess it can make is that E: is somewhere above where the xml file itself sits. Which is what it’s trying to do… figure out where the share point is relative to where the xml file sits. If the share point isn’t above the file, then it won’t succeed.

    Bottom line: put the xml file somewhere under the share that you have connected for your iTunes library.

    Thanks. I hear you.

    I do have a XML file in the /music/MP3 folder:

    2007-11-05 15:34:10 (00004000): About to scan /volume1/music/MP3/Library.xml
    it says it wants to scan it, but it never seem to actually do it.

    anyway:
    Playlists in that file points to music that sits in E:/MP3.
    I thought /volume1/music/MP3 on the NAS would be OK, but i guess i have to make it closer a la:
    E:/volume1/MP3
    NAS:/volume1/MP3

    (don’t want to create a seperate volume on the NAS, hence the stupid volume1)

    again, thanks

    Yeah, you can kinda see how it’s trying to search around and find where the files might be. It’s kind of a dumb scanner, but I can’t really think of a better way to map those.

    Maybe I could have some user maps in the config, so you could say path X in the xml corresponds to Y on the nas, but that’s the only other way I could figure to do it.
