All I really want to do is use the mycloud as a NAS drive for the music folder.
How in simple terms do I copy the music folder that I have on the current desktops HDD over to the mycloud.
My set up is as follows
I am using minim as the media server (windows Media server is disabled) and realise I will have to point this to the WDcloud etc but at the moment I cant work out how I move the music folder over (or create a new folder) and all the music inside it to the mycloud 3TB
Second, the My Cloud already includes a media server called Twonky for streaming music, video, pictures. The My Cloud also includes an iTunes media server for streaming music to iTunes capable devices.
Third, one configures the My Cloud, including creating additional “Shares”, enabling/disabling the Twonky media server (and iTunes media server), enabling/disabling “Media Serving” on those Shares through the My Cloud Dashboard.
Forth, to copy files/folders to the My Cloud one typically uses Windows File Explorer or Mac Finder. One can make things easier by “mapping” a Share to the local computer.
I have Windows 10 with all updates on both my Laptop and Desktop computers and I have not had any problems viewing my My Cloud, 1st generation, on the Network .
It’s important as already recommended in other post that you read all information , , along with Help, , that is provided in the Dashboard. Read the User Manual for your generation of My Cloud. Treat the My Cloud like a computer, as it is, and drag and drop your music unless you want to back it up to your My Cloud using backup software.
If your Windows 10 PC is connected to the same local network as the My Cloud then see the following post that has several suggested things to try when it comes to Windows 10 settings and the inability to see devices on the local network.
Also make sure to use the same workgroup name for both the My Cloud and the computers on the local network.
Check the computer’s firewall/security software as certain firewall/security software settings may block access to local network devices like the My Cloud.
As a troubleshooting step try accessing the My cloud using the My Cloud’s IP address.
Twonky is a DLNA media server. It has its issues but is a functional media server for streaming supported content. See the MY Cloud User Manual for more information on Twonky supported streaming media.
