Two years later…fixed. I think I tried every fix on this board and I think I have the easiet soluition to the issue of no media in folder. The problem seems to be compatability with windows media player.
I finally gave up and downloaded media monkey, which is dnla/upnup compliant, set it to run as a server and suddenly everything appears and hasn’t glitched in a week.
MM can also be set to replace your squeezebox server for those of you running logitech stuff.
Get rid of windows media player as your primary server and you are rolling!
