The Music Root is a mandatory field in Settings and it determines what's your default entry for the Library Area.
When this is not set according to XXHighEnd's rules, various error messages may be your part, especially when Coverart is to be shown (DEactivate "Don't do anything with Coverart" in Settings for that). Two main rules apply :

1. Your folders with albums (which latter are folders themselves) must be preceeded with two folders at least;
2. You must point your Music Root to this second higherup folder at least.


Examples which will work okay :

\MyMusic\Jazz\An Album\
\MyMusic\Jazz\A second Album\
(the bold is to be your Music Root here)

\MultiMedia\MyMusic\Jazz\An Album\
\MultiMedia\MyMusic\Jazz\A second Album\
(the bold is allowed to be your Music Root here)


Examples of what will be wrong :

\Jazz\An Album\
\Jazz\An Album\
\An Album\
\A second album\


Keep in mind : You may be ignorant about this, which is okay - as long as you don't forget this; it easily can be so that you don't notice a thing at first sight, but that lateron you run into problems (error messages, not properly working out "albums" for their names).

Notice that this is all about automatically finding the proper album data and separate them, including multi volume albums and even box sets. A lot of it is related to appointing the Coverart for which you don't have to do a thing other than maintaining a logical structure of which your plain eyes allow the differentiation. So, an example which really is applied here or there but won't work out for your eyes for sure, is dunking all the Coverart into one (higher) folder and pray that something is able to match it with the appropriate albums; it can't.
(it could when all was redundently present in a database, but this is not in order here, allowing you to freely move your albums without hassle).

If you find your structure not be compliant to this, do not start coying everything to a new appropriate structure, but just create that new e.g. \MyMusic\Jazz\ and just *move* (Explorer) the folders files to there in one go (this goes within a fraction of a second).

So notice this too :
It looks the most easy to just put a few tracks on an USB pen and try to play from that. Anticipate that this will not work. So please let these files preceede those two folders which just can be \Music\Test\.

When you have not prepared this in good fashion, the least you should do is have that "Don't do anything with Coverart" deactivated (which is the default). This matters somewhat.
