Hello,

When playing Music from a network drive,   Tag data data (title,  Album name, Artist),  are not displayed.

Clearly  the system knows how to read this data,  because it displays album art properly, as well as full tag data when the Media lbirary is on.

To me this is annoying, since I prefer to browse the music collection  by  Folder, rather than by Tags.   Apparently, I can only do this by disabling the  Media lirbary feature and losing most of the tag information.

Am I missing something?

Thank you.

Al

You need to have the media library turned on. Yes, it sucks.

Thanks for the reply.

The media scan takes for ever - and often hangs.

When it IS completed,  It is not very useful to me,  as I prefer to browse via folders and not via tags ....

Any point in  submitting a feature request?
