Hello everyone -
I'm running a dual boot: XP Pro on one HD and Slack12 on the other. I'm slowly porting everything to Linux. One of the things I'm trying to do is find a suitable music player that can utilize my music that's stored on an external USB drive. I've got the drive mounted and can see the files, but when I go to build the library in amarock, nothing happens.
You may want to try this one.

Its still beta but it might be worth a try..good luck.
Did you add that directory to the search path in Amarok? Also make sure the drive is mounted read/write - this helps with tagging and metadata though it is not essential.
