i recently made the step towards ubuntu 13.04 and while using banshee as well as with rythmbox every time i restart my machine she cant find my music files. (big ¨!" in front of the songs) i have to delete my library and import it again and its just fine again.. till i restart.

i have my music stored onto a seperate partition with ntfs format. (i put it there while using win7)

any ideas?

  • By default Ubuntu does not mount NTFS partitions on startup. You can try mounting your Windows partition before opening Banshee or you can try the answer of How to automount NTFS partitions?. The best solution, though, is creating a FAT32 partition to store your music files, in my opinion. – edwin Jun 28 '13 at 18:29

The problem is that the D: partition is not automatically mounted by Ubuntu, so Banshee can't find it.

  1. Run the command sudo apt-get install nfts-config
  2. Search for NFTS Configuration Tool in your Dash
  3. Open it and select the D: partition, then configure it to mount automatically.

You may need to reboot your computer, but Banshee should work after that.
