    My Mac connects to my iTunes library on a windows server via SMB. Normally my iTunes library sees the files in /Volumes/Media/Music. My windows server rebooted and now the mount has become /Volumes/Media-1/Music so iTunes can't find anything.

    I've tried rebooting both. In terminal I typed "umount /Volumes/Media-1" and I can unmount the share but when I remount it still goes to Media-1 instead of Media. Can anyone give me some help? Thanks in advance.

    I figured it out and am leaving the answer in the event someone else has the same problem someday.

    Makes sure the share is unmounted. In terminal type:
    umount /Volumes/SHARENAME (SHARENAME = your share)

    In finder, select "Go To Folder"
    Enter /Volumes
    You will probably see a folder named "SHARENAME". A connected share looks like a hard drive.
    Move the folder to the trash
    Remount the share. It will most likely work.
