    - Open the rr.ini in notepad or any text editor.
    - Search the file (Press Control f) for "mediadrive"
    - On that line change the drive letter, to what you CD/DVD drive is on your system. If your CD drive is d: then the line should read like this: mediadrive=d

    John, I didn't have this either in my rr.ini, so I had to add this and it seems to work for me.......

    cameronlazzari, Open RRConfig.---> Scoll down on left hand colum to "INI Variables"---> INI Extra's---> and add @ bottom of list "mediadrive=D" or what your drive letter is.(without quotes).

    See if this helps.

    I did that and there is nothing in there called mediadrive. I also tried media and drive nothing came up. Should I add it in and if I do where should I put it?

    John, is the "internetRadio" problem with deleting added radio urls etc. when clicking on... " update station list from the internet" button fixed, or is it in upcoming fix?

    you can add the MediaDrive line anywhere in the rr.ini anywhere you want, if it does not exist.

    The update radio stations has been fixed and is in the last version updated in the store. If you have added custom stations, back those up, as it will overwrite them when it does an update.

    The update basically is a script that I wrote, that goes to shoutcast, gets their RSS feed's for each Genre, and adds them all automatically. If a few weeks down the road / few months, it seems like some of the stations have died (Internet radio stations come and go a lot!) just update, and you will get all new stations for the genre's

    I've been running through and getting the skin set up for me to use. Question though: How does the iPod integration work? I have my library showing up in the skin correctly, and when I plug my ipod in, it shows up in the library with the usual (ipod album, ipod artist, ect ect), but whenever I select one of the iPod options it hard crashes all of the ride runner. What gives?

    P.S. Other than that, fantastic skin! I can't wait to start my install!

    Yeah, that script to scrape,...update is pretty neat!

    I notice there wasn't a comedy genre though....yeah I know it's not a genre, but I differ....so I added a "[Comedy"] genre, and a "[My Stations]". The my stations list consist of non-shoutcast urls...ie: Live365, LastFM, which I listen to also. Is there anyway to exclude the "[My Stations]" list that I created from being scanned and updated, so the list doesn't get deleted?

    If not that's OK, I'll just use the Shoutcast urls I guess.......nuff said.......Thanks bud.

    Question

    I hate to be a killjoy but, I just updated RR... the new June version on two machines "7" & "XP", and both have the same problem...No More "InetRadioLables".......POOFF! all gone.

    EDIT: Restarting PC a few times seem to fix the lables showing up again?.....strange.
