HOW-TO:Share libraries using MySQL: Wiki Edition
I use this in ALL my advancedsettings.xml files. It works just fine for all my Android and Windows devices.

<videodatabase>
<type>mysql</type>
<host>192.168.1.XXX</host>
<port>3306</port>
<user>XXXX</user>
<pass>XXXX</pass>
</videodatabase>

<musicdatabase>
<type>mysql</type>
<host>192.168.1.XXX</host>
<port>3306</port>
<user>XXXX</user>
<pass>XXXX</pass>
</musicdatabase>

Where X's = YOUR info. No need to map drives at all.

Now, I'm not sure not a dbase kinda guy, but once you have all those NEW devices added it might require a re-do of the database...i.e. drop it in in mysql and let one of the devices rebuild it. Like I say, not a dbase kinda guy so I just might be wrong. I'm sure someone will chime in and correct me.

Merry Christmas!
