Cannot stream music from website after folder is moved to different drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I moved my shared folders to a different drive.  Something is funny with the libraries now.  I open windows media player on the server, I can see my music under libraries.  But if I click on the server library, it doesn't show up.  Also on the remote website, I can see the files in the folders, but I cannot stream.  The library isn't there.  Anyone?

  • This doesn't really make any sense, but to fix the problem, I had to go into the home group options in the dashboard, and enable sharing with the home group.  I have no idea what home group sharing has to do with remote web streaming, but it fixed the problem.

  • In windows media player try going to Organize -> Manage  Libraries -> Music  and see if the current library is pointing to the correct location.  If it is not, then remove the incorrect location and add the correct location back.

  • I've noticed problems with the library refreshing after moving/deleting media. I've had to stop streaming, delete the library databases and restart streaming to resolve it.
