I actually copied my ripped CD files over to the new Music Store MQ folder, as there were only a dozen...But noted - I should have created a new music store and transferred in between using Naim interface. It was very relieving to see all the files again in N-serve, and randomly tested just fine..I do think the instructions in the manual (section 7) should be more explicit, highlighting from the beginning, that 2 different folders be created as you guys put it: one folder specifically designated by the NAIM interface as "Music Store" ONLY for the CD's ripped and a second folder designated as the "Network Share" for all remaining music. They could have then put the mechanics afterwards...it would have been so much more intuitive. Well, all is well that ends well. Thanks again!
