Okey, so at first I must admit, I didn’t really follow the manual when it comes to DLNA…
I deleted any ‘shared folders’ that I thought I didn’t need.
Thus all shared folders were gone. All that remained were WD’s ’ Software ’ and my own ’ Film’, ‘Music’ and ‘Backup’. These were all entered though the ’ Shares’ menu.
Now, when I try and access the Duo by Sony PS3 or Samsung UE6100 TV, I get a hugely complicated folderstructure.
I reread the manual and added the shared folders and the smartware folders again. Thus having these:
Overige ( means ‘Misc’ in Dutch )
In my Public share / folder I have these:
Software ( WD map with WD software )
In each Shared folder I have my content sorted in it’s own map structure.
I.e. Shared Video -> Series -> *name of serie* -> season 1 -> *actual content S01E01.avi*
Now, the problem…
When I search for content on my Samsung TV or playstation 3, I have to select what type ( Photo, video or music ) and I get this:
WD NAS -> Music
If I select Video I get this:
Video -> Upper Folder
Some more DLNA standard folders
Seeing I have not sorted any video by anything exept their title and season I select Folder and get this:
Folder -> Upper Folder
Public? Aren’t we in the Video folder yet? Okey, I select Public.
Public -> Shared Videos
What? Jeez, only NOW I get to the shared maps?
Shared Videos -> Movies
Okey! I’ve gotten to my own content… What a hassle? CAn’t WD do something about this?
About the Smareware… It didn’t recognise my Duo 'till I added a ‘Smartware’ share/folder to the Duo.
Okey. Now Smartware recognizes my Duo but it shows as ‘locked’. How do I unlock?
Can anyone help me to the right track for a simplyfied DLNA folderstructure and giove a hand with the smartware software? I’ve updated everything WD has to offer on the download section yesterday. Software and firmware.
Also Win x64 is fully updated. Network is 1Gb/sec and rouder is a Cisco / lynksys. Recent model, uPNP enabled.
