Topic: My Music Files- Expected format ?
Glad to see the music files option is showing up now. That was 50% of what I got the Chumby for.
I have _plenty_ of 2Gb flash drives so I'm ready to go..(Cruzer micro 2GB)
I'm currently typing this as Chumby just sits here with a progress spinner Scanning for music files.
I initially tried it with a Music subfolder, no .pls (since I currently haven't found a good .pls generator for my Mac. I'm sure they're out there..)
This resulted in a soft reboot. (or a freeze in mid-search, then reboots)
Okay, try something different.
I moved all the other files to a subfolder, put the music files in the top directory.
This is where I'm at now. It's still scanning, but no reboot at least.
I've searched the forum, the wiki (which needs a Music category btw) and don't know what it's looking for.
I'll be glad to comply, once I know what it expects. Short names? a specific folder?
Still spinning as I hit the submit. Guess I'll have to give up for the moment,but I'll leave it on in hopes it finds the music..
I realize it's beta, of course, but some help would be appreciated.
Edit: Okay, One problem solved! I removed all the other files on my flash drive. apparently it was searching those directories.
Advice: Limit the searches to certain top directories, and note where we need to put files; i.e. a "Music" folder.
New problem: it plays one song, then reboots. Agg!
