@Maleko12 - no hurry.  Do what you can, when you can, and report back.  The fact that you can connect via the Android just pushes me more to think something is misconfigured in MB.  Which seems unlikely since I've seen the screen shots.   In the meantime, I'll see what else I can come up with.

I heard a rumor that when we get this resolved Sarge is buying beers for everyone.

Just to throw another issue in. I've changed all my folder structuring for my music since last using subsonic to:-

Media\My Music\Artist\(year) - Artist - Album Title [format &/or bitrate]

As a result SS won't pick up the folders. I'm not gonna bother donating if it won't accept my folder structures cos it's pointless if I can't use the service.  :(

i noticed it seems restrictive in the folder heirachy (2 levels) otherwise it doesnt seem to load the files. Perhaps there is a setting. I dont know it well enough to know if there is a solution
But in your case, if you go to the settings in the subsonic application, why not just remove the old collection and add
Media\My Music\

When I was first looking for an app like this (about a year ago) I tried Subsonic and VibeStreamer.  My directory structure is as follows:
Volume_1\Music_Files\Artist\Album\track.mp3
Subsonic couldn't deal with it and Vibestreamer could, so I used that for a while.  Once the MB forums chatter started talking about Subsonic, I tried it again and it picks up the tracks just fine using the same structure it couldn't in a prior version.

It doesn't have as nice a GUI, nor is it as configurable, but it works.

I was never able to get one skin/theme to work.  Other than the default.

Also note that as far as I can remember (which often times is about fifteen seconds ago) there's no phone app for it, nor will it work within MB.  You can, of course, hit it with a smartphone's web browser.

I have never tried them either (themes) but when I used to use it, I remember seeing pre made themes.
I might mess with it again since my version is older one.

OK... just tried using MB from another computer... and the SubSonic plugin is still showing the same error in MB. However, I can still login to SubSonic on the same computer via the web interface. Very strange indeed :(

I'm loving VibeStreamer. It's far simpler than SS and does the job just as well imo.
