Problems whit partitions and listening to music from them

I'm new using Slackware. Also, I use Ubuntu in the same computer. That's why I have a "data" partition that is mounted on both of them. This is the line on /etc/fstab that mount the partition:
/dev/sda7 /home/alculquicondor/.datos ext3 defaults 0 0
Then, I have a link to the directories inside of .datos. I used this:
ln -sf .datos/Música Música
I have no problems with this before I tried to use Amarok. This can not play the files. I copied some files in /home/alculquicondor and Amarok could play them, but not those who are in the other partition.

In Ubuntu, Rhymthbox played them normally.

Somebody knows what's wrong?

What was the specific error message? What was the exact action that made it occur?

Maybe "ú" in Musica is the problem. I'm just guessing, but I think you should pass the utf8 option, or change "Música" into "Musica. However, once again, I'm just guessing.
