RE: iMac Yosemite iTunes library loaded from MyBookLive but won’t play songs
I have copied my iTunes library to MyBookLive (updated to firmware 02.43.09-038) and enabled the Media iTunes share setting.
I have no problem accessing MyBookLive through remote mobile apps, from my PC or from my new iMac. On the new iMac I can browse and access all the files and play songs in my iTunes library as individual files in the Finder file maanger.
On my PC iTunes loads the MyBookLive library and can play music without any problems.
On the iMac (running Yosemite) iTunes also loads the MyBookLive iTunes library without problem, but will not play any songs. The song is visible, but nothing happens when I try to press play. Play button is greyed out. Media files all copied from iTunes originally on PC and play OK on iPod/iPad/iPhone OK.
On the iMac opening the get information box about a song shows all the information, but it is all greyed out. Sometimes when attempting to play the file a “wait” icon appears (the colourful swirling wheel like the windows egg timer) but nothing happens. Files copied from the MyBookLive iTunes library to the local iTunes library on the iMac play find. To be clear - volume is up playing local files fine.
I’m a new member here and couldn’t find this same problem anywhere. Any help with this appreciated, thanks in advance for your time.
