Default ncmpc configuration(?) problem

Hello people,

As the time goes by, i try to test new programs whith my OpenBSD snapshot.
Lately i've been trying to make mpd + ncmpc work.These are the uncomented lines in my 'home/sepuku/.mpd/mpd.conf' :

music_directory                 "/mnt/internaldrives/sepuku/music"
playlist_directory              "/home/sepuku/.mpd/playlists"
db_file                         "/home/sepuku/.mpd/mpd.db"
log_file                        "/home/sepuku/.mpd/mpd.log"
pid_file                        "/home/sepuku/.mpd/mpd.pid"
state_file                      "/home/sepuku/.mpd/mpdstate"
user                            "_mpd"
bind_to_address                 "localhost"
port                            "6600"
then i mount my internal disk:

sudo mount /dev/wd1d /mnt/internaldrives
then i update the db with

mpc update 
volume:100%   repeat: off   random: off   single: off   consume: off
which seems to work.

Yet when i start ncmpc i see no music in the program.Please notice that the same configurations work like a charm in my thinkpad laptop which also runs snapshot.

Then i changed the music directrory to /usr/downloads/music and reboot(in case there was a chance to be necessary in order the changes to be applied)

but although the music directory is changed,if i start mpd it says: "/mnt/internaldrives/sepuku/music" is not a directory and of course ncmpc still won't find my music in neither of the directories.

Any ideas?I just can't understand why i can't make it work on my desktop.
