.WMA files copied to \\server\music but don't show up for clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • Maybe I'm just not cut out for this "media center" thing.

    I ripped a CD to WMA Lossless (then VBR just to check) on a Vista WMP11 client. Then I copied the folder and its contents from the local music folder on the client to the shared music folder on the server.

    An hour later, still, none of my clients can see the album or any songs on the remote library. Otherwise the clients see the server and even see photos and a playlist (.wpl, of photos) added previously.

    I MUST be missing something. But I don't have a clue what.

  • The album--less the album art--finally showed up. After a server re-boot and another twenty minutes.

    Is this typical?
