USING YOUR DIGITAL MUSIC SERVER WITH A PORTABLE PLAYER

The recordings on your XMusic Digital Music Server can be transferred to a portable player (for example, an Apple® iPod®) to allow you to listen to your music collection while you are away from home. This chapter describes how to transfer music from your Digital Music Server to the portable player using a personal computer.

The illustration below shows a typical home network:

  • *

    Macintosh computer running OS X 10.3 or higher or PC

running Microsoft Windows 98, Me, 2000, or XP.

In order to access the music files on your Digital Music Server from the computer you must first enable Server Access as follows:

  • Display the Main Menu by pressing the key on your Digital Music Server remote control.

  • Press the or key to highlight the Settings option and press the Select action key.

  • Press the or key to highlight the System Settings option and press the Select action key.

  • Press the or key to highlight the Server Access option and press the Select action key.

The following screen will be displayed:

  • Navigate to your Digital Music Server on the network and double-click the appropriate icon.

  • If your Digital Music Server does not appear in the browse window return to the Connect to Server window and enter: smb://<WORKGROUP><XMUSICSERVER_NAME>

    • (e.

      g. smb://MSHOME;S2000_000123) into the Server Address box, then click the Connect button. Note: both the Workgroup and Digital Music Server Name should be in uppercase.

  • In the SMB Mount window click the OK button.

You can now transfer music directly from your Digital Music Server to a portable player. The following two sections describe how to transfer files using two popular media player applications, iTunes® and Windows® Media Player.

Transferring Music to your Portable Player using iTunes

The iTunes Media Player application is specifically designed to simplify the process of synchronising your music collection with an iPod portable player. Support for other devices is limited; you should check that your portable player is compatible before using this application. iTunes version 4.6 or later is required.

The Library source in iTunes shows all media files stored on the local hard disk as well as media which has been added from other network drives. You can add the music collection from your Digital Music Server to the Library as follows:

  • Select the Preferences option. This can be found under the Edit menu on the Windows edition of iTunes and under the iTunes menu on the Macintosh version.

Ensure that the Workgroup item indicates the name of your current network workgroup; for most simple home networks MSHOME (the default entry) should be correct. If this is not the case, highlight this option using the or keys then press the Edit action key to enter a new name.

  • Select the Advanced tab.

  • Ensure that the option labelled Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library is unchecked.

  • Click the OK button to confirm any changes.

  • From the File menu select the Import... option.

  • Select XML Files in the Files of type options (Windows version only).

  • Navigate to the hard disk of your Digital Music Server on the network.
