I have about 1.3TB of video files on a 4TB Seagate external hard drive. I would like to transfer them to my new WD MyCloud EX4. I have created these files by copying purchased DVDs using DVDfab. Each disc copies as its own discrete directory, which then contains two sub directories, AUDIO_TS (empty) and VIDEO_TS (which contains lots of files.) I have plugged the Seagate drive via what purports to be a USB 3.0 link into the back of the EX4.
Is there any way I can set up a backup job which contains lots of individual files, but not a whole directory´s worth? I am loathe to try and backup the entire master directory of files since I am sure that a) it will take weeks, and b) it will fall over part way anyway.
I have a WD TV Live which I have used with the Seagate drive to play videos on my TV. If the Seagate Drive is plugged directly into the WD TV then we can just click on the name of the disk and it will start playing. But playing it through the EX4 (where both the EX4 and the WD TV live are plugged via Ethernet cables into the router) I have to go to thje first individual video file in the VIDEO_TS folder to get anything to play. And then I have to manually start the next one, Useless!
I can´t get subtitles to work. Which, as I´m a fan of Euro’crime series without being much of a linguist, is rather unfortunate!
I´m sure these are all things I can overcome, but i do need help!
