Ey guys, I am trying to get Amarok to read my music files from my Windows partition, but it won't let me see the mounted drives or let me go up past the root to the computer level. In the file browser I am able to access the music perfectly fine, but the Amarok add media browser doesn't let me select a partition. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I don't know much about amarok, but with vlc I have no troubles opening files from a mounted partition.. maybe you could give it a try

All the NTFS (Windows) partitions are mounted by default on the /media folder. From Amarok, try searching the /media folder; there you should find your Windows partition.

Yeah, that seemed to work. Had to type it in for it to show up. Thanks.
