Question

Itunes


I have looked at all the questions linked to mine and the answers, but with no luck.  I have a 2012 imac and the Sonos Play:1.  I have just bought a new macbook air, but I have so much music on my Imac, that I don’t wan to clog up the Macbook.  However, I seem to have lost the ability to play music on the Sonos from itunes on the iMac.  I have done what it suggests on file sharing on the iMac (at least I think I have) then I tried adding it to Sonos but get error messges.  It says ‘Adding share informaton to Sonos system,’ but after 2 or 3 minutes I get this message - Unable to add the shared folder //JonathansiMac/iTunes to your music library (913)

Or Unable to add the shared folder ‘//JonathansiMac/Music to your Music Library - errr code (913)

 

I’ve also had error codes 1001 and 1002 - and rebooted my Sonos as suggested.  Nothing

 

Also checked the firewall.

 

Just wondering if it should work … or have Sonos done something that means it’s impossible ??

You can’t add it the old way anymore.  You need to follow these updated instructions ( make sure you use the Mac app on the iMac that is storing the music):

Thanks. I’ll have a look at this and give it a try. What do you mean by the Mac app on the iMac?

Yes, of course. Got that.
