How can i add some new music

Typically you insert a music CD disk and the unit will rip the disk into its music directory. This procedure uses Gracenote to populate the MySQL database with information about the album and each song. My current experiance is that the Gracenote interface code in the SMS3 is no longer suported by the current Gracenote network portal so the SMS database is not properly populated.

Unfortunetly the MySQL database schema is not simple to modify, having several tables and associated indicies. Try to connect from your browser to the IP address of the SMS3. You may have options there to add music to the import folder which will populate the music database sans the Gracenote info.

With no support from Russound to go further you will need to change the root password to one your own by attaching the SMS3 hard drive to a Linux computer. While you are doing that I suggest you (dd) a copy of the SMS disk for later use in case of disk failure. You can use this copy later to mank a duplicate disk for the SMS3. This is not trival and you will need help from a Linux or Unix System 5 tech to really do much on the server side. That said it is just a Red Hat Linux distro with some really great script software running the media server. Russound did custom the boot ROM on the VIA MOBO but that was just to get the splash screen and a video trick to work (just guessing about the video).

Naming tracks on my new MP3 player

The software that comes with your player uses an online database from "Gracenote" (link below)to name the tracks. When you copy from a CD the software recognises the disk & looks up the database to find the track info, if you are not connected to the internet or your firewall software is blocking the request it will not be able to retrieve the track info & will just name the tracks "track 1" etc. You can rename the track yourself in the program by highlighting the track in the PC software and pressing the right mouse button & choose "property" this opens a window where you can edit the track title but not the file name. You can update the tracks you already have by connecting to the internet then highlight & right click as before but now choose "get track info", the software will connect & retrieve the track info and ask if you want to change it. There is a problem with language CD's as they will often not be in the database and you will need to name them yourself. There are many helpful programs available (some free) to rename the tracks (technically known as ID3 tags). Search on the web for "mp3 tag software".

Downloading a new cd onto Gracenote

First, you have to download a cd player software of some sort, i.e. itunes, wmp, or realplayer.  Once it is downloaded on to the player, you can sync your iriver with the player and you will have fun music to listen to on your mp3 player:)
