NAS not accessible


#1

I’m trying to set up my 4TB Sharespace for my Sonos system…Sonos can index the music files, but it can’t access the NAS to play the files (something about access/permissions), but I can access the drive from my laptop (with WD’s s/w installed). Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Here’s the solution:

Basically have to repoint the device to a new “root” directory…in my setup, in addition to the folders that came set up already (Download and Public, plus a couple of hidden system directories), my CD ripping service created a few more, e.g., Lossless, Mp3, Purchased. While my WinXP laptop saw these drives after I installed WD’s s/w and while Sonos was able to scan them, the Sonos wasn’t able to access these files/directories when I wanted to play music. Repointing the Sharespace’s root from “DataVolume/Public/” to “DataVolume/” (per above link) solved that.
