Windows 2003 Server and iTunes Folder on NAS

    I have a workstation being Synced realtime with a QNAP NAS so i have a complete backup of the workstation. I’ve setup a Server 2003 Virtual Machine and installed Bonjour and Firefly and the NAS data is mapped as a Drive.

    If i point Firefly to \NASdataUsersbbasraMusiciTunes or S:UsersbbasraMusiciTunes, it simply doesn’t pick iTunes or any files.

    Log file: firefly.log

    I’ve shortened the Server name, extensions are .mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.wma,.flac,.ogg. Also, my XBMC simple keeps saying cannot connect when using DAAP and pointing it to my VM using IP address.

    Any ideas?


    Check the permissions. Firefly most likely can’t see the files because it doesn’t have permission to read the files


    I have now manged to detect the itunes library using the mapped drive and UNC path on the NAS.

    I had to setup the firefly service to use domain account instead of local system account so it was a permissions issue.

    The XBMC now also see’s the itunes library and playlists but all the songs have a number in front of it and they are not in the same order as itunes. Any idea’s?

    It seems to be working otherwise.


    You have to change some display settings within XBMC.
    First bring up your file list. You’ll see all the files with numbers in front of them
    Then bring up the pop-up menu and pick the settings option. ( I have an original xbox and get this by pressing the white button)
    Scroll down to the files option
    On the right you’ll see “Track Naming Template” and it will read something like “[N]” %A – %T.
    Simply erase everything in front of %A – %T and your files should now appear in order of artist name.
