Discover DJ not reading my music

I have all of my music on an external drive and have followed the instructions I have found on the tutorial and still only get a few songs to show. ALL of the songs that show are ones I bought on line. I have thousands of songs I ripped from CDs that are not showing up. They show up on other programs on the computer, but will not show up in Cross.

What do I do?

I mapped the drive fine and have been able to use the tracks on SAM Broadcaster. They were all ripped from the CD's to the computer and compiled on the external drive.

Cross can read the files the songs are in, but not the songs. (they are in CD folders that you normally find when ripping music that way.)

I don't use I tunes.

:cool: :cool: :?: are you able to navigate thru browser and open the files to mixvibes collection,,i have also files that were ripped by wmp and the drm doesnt allow then to be seen by Cross..are other files on your computer seen and used by Cross :?: :?:

:idea: :idea: try pripping 1 or two files using wmp and select mp3 and see if Cross reconizes them :idea: :idea:

i think Cross doesnt read wma files :eek:

:?: :?: check the product manual i think that is the problem :?: :?:

Mr Clark is correct, Cross (and the version you have) does not support Windows Media Audio (WMA) files.

You will either have to convert the files to mp3 or re-rip the files to mp3.
