    Im trying to set up NetJukebox on XAMMP and I need to paste in the file references to where my music is held on the HDD.

    Now, on a PC I would just be something D:/Music/ or something, with 'D' referncing the drive where the folder Music is held. The trouble Im having is doing this but with the 'Macintosh HD' drive, because I dont think that /User/*UserNameHere*/Music/ will work by itself.

    Is there a way I can include the drive name as well in that folder reference?

    The drive you are booted to is always at /, with other drives mounted at /Volumes/Drive Name. So yes, using /Users/username/Music will work fine as long as the user XAMPP is running on has read permissions on that directory.
