Description of Issue
Help please - I am a new user and struggling with getting ROON to access my itune playlists.
I have copied the playlists into my Shared Music Folder - see screenshot
I have enabled “Import iTune playlists” - see screenshot
However, when I select Playlists under My Stuff in Roon the Play lists do not appear?
What do I need to do to get ROON to see the iTune playlists?
Hi - is anybody able to help me with this?
I have imported my iTunes .xml files into my Watch Folder; I have also imported the .xml files into the iTunes folder within my Watch Folder.
All of the tracks in my I.Tunes Playlists are also on my Watch Folder AND also in the iTunes folder.
However, I cannot find how/ where to access and play my iTunes Playlists from within ROON?
What am I doing wrong not to be able to see/access the iTune playlists in ROON.
The information I have read says you can see iTunes playlists in your LIbrary when correctly set up.
Does that mean an additional category is available within my Library in addition to Albums; Artists; Tracks; Composers; Compositions and My Live Radio?
Maybe we should wait for someone who has done this before, as I have not.
However, your playlist file says that the tracks can be found at C:/Users/Phil/Music/iTunes/iTunes%20Media/ and this is a Windows folder, which does not exist on the Synology. So how should Roon find the files?
And as far as I can tell, the documentation for importing iTunes playlists seems to be saying something different than what you are doing. Maybe there is a another way, but I don’t see it.
Hopefully someone else who has attempted this can help out, sorry. Else, official support will help, but it can take a few days
I have now managed throungh Soundiz to export my iTunes Playlists to GoBuz - most tracks exported but not some obscure blues/punk tracks not available on Gobuz - and can then see them within ROON via My Playlists within my Qobuz link.
However, I will still persever trying to get the play;lists imported directly into ROON but now no urgency in achieving that.
I‘m mirroring my whole Music folder to my Roon Server (LocalStorage) and the Playlists are imported by Roon. As I‘m using Music App on a Mac I‘ve to export the whole library as XML beside the library file and name it iTunes Music Library.xml. Then Roon imports my Playlists for the local files.
On the 1st February I requested help regarding iTunes Playlists.
I have since posted follow up request for help.
Other than one Community member trying , unsuccesfully, to help there has been no reply from “Support”
What is the point of paying a subscription if there is a lack of technical support to help resolve problems?
A little melodramatic, don’t you think? As @Jim_F, says the Roon support team has a small number of staff and your issue isn’t exactly a show-stopper. Roon still works, you just have an issue with a playlist.
Your .XML points to a windows folder. Can you edit the target location to point it to the correct folder on your NAS?
Have a look under Control Panel>File Services on your NAS. The details under the SMB and AFP tabs should give you a hint as to the the local network location of your NAS.

@Suedkiez told you exactly what the problem was, Phil. I imagine that’s why Roon support stayed out of it.
You attempted an unsupported thing. iTunes playlists won’t work if you just move them over to a different computer, as you did. You have to leave the playlists on the Mac to use the feature where Roon will see them.
Wow, I had no idea they had just 4 people for support. I’m not sure what to make of that. How do they get it all done? I would think they’d need more people than that. Much respect to the Roon support team. Many thanks to all of those who step in to help.
Thank you for responding to my post.
My point is that I pay a monthly subscription to a service.
I am unablwe to access all those services and there seems to be no Technical Support.
Judging by the number of requests on the forums, I would suggest that just 4 Technical Support staff is woefully inadequate.
If I cannot avail myself of the service that I pay for, then one solution is to cancel my subscription.
My preferred solution would be to resolve the issue that I have with iTune Playlists - will have to see how that goes.
Thank you for your reply.
I dont think that is melodramatic to cancel a subscription for a service where I cannot avail myself of all its features.
iTunes may not be a showstopper for you, but they are for me.
However, thank you for your suggestions.
I should point out that I am 74 yearts old and not particularly tech savvy. I have done my best to follow the information availble to get iTunes Playlists working but to no avail.
I will look into the File Service on my NAS and see if there any hints.
