MinimServer does read and play .dff files. A number of people are using MinimServer with the LUMIN player to play these files.

MinimServer currently doesn't read tags from .dff files, so you'll need to use either [folder view] or [untagged] in the index to find and play your .dff files.

Simon..thanks..i will do that when i get home..dave
Simon..how and where do i make the change to 'folder view'..dave

I'm pleased to hear this is working for you now.

I downloaded a sample .dff file from Channel Classics. It doesn't contain any tags. The .dff format specification doesn't allow tags, so this is correct. Some programs use a nonstandard extension for adding tags to .dff files, but MinimServer doesn't support this nonstandard extension.

I'll contact Channel Classics and ask whether they have any future plans to add tags to DSD files.

Your're very welcome!

I received a response from Channel Classics. They do plan to add tags to DSD downloads in the future.

Perhaps you copied the previous .dff files to another location under your content directory, and MinimServer is scanning that other location but isn't scanning your download folder.

Try using [folder view] instead of [untagged]. Do you see your download folder under [folder view]? (You might need to go down a few levels.) If you do see your download folder there, which .dff files does the download folder contain?

The folder view is organized as a hierachical tree. Suppose your content directory is a folder named Music which contains folders A and B, and folder A contains folders A1 and A2. The [folder view] selection will initially show you the content of the Music folder (A and B). To see the contents of the A folder, you need to select A (go down a level). This will show you A1 and A2. To see the contents of the A1 folder, you need to select A1 (go down another level).
