Hi I'm hoping that Drutt or Blackhole may be able to help with this problem (or indeed anybody that could throw some light onto the situation). I have the following :- HDR with 1.02.27 Cf 2.10 cifs 2.6.18 network-shares-automount 1.3 samba 2.2.12-3 I have successfully mounted a test file on my main pc using the following:- / media /My Video /[ModSettings] /smb /Office (36.0KiB) [parent directory] domain=WORKGROUP (4.0KiB) folder=testfrompc (4.0KiB) host=192_168_0_101 (4.0KiB) mac=ABABABABABAB (only needed for wakeUp) (4.0KiB) password=password (4.0KiB) shareFolder=off (4.0KiB) user=user (4.0KiB) wakeUp=off (4.0KiB) There are seven files (avi/mp4) all of which play fine. I could not at first see anything on the network of the HDR I tried many many times eventually after typing \\192.168.0.100\media into add network place wizard all the files became visible (playable) god knows why but that is now all ok. Moving on, I now want to set up a share from my Sumvision Cyclone MKV enclosure that has a 2Tb hard drive and thousands of media files on it (avi/mp4/mkv etc). The media player is Linux based running Samba and can be seen on any of my network places without any problem, in a sense I’m using it as a NAS. I have tried to set up a share using both the following:- / media /My Video /[ModSettings] /smb /Sumvision (36.0KiB) [parent directory] domain=Workgroup (4.0KiB) folder=Action (4.0KiB) host=192_168_0_104 (4.0KiB) mac=ABABABABABAB (only needed for wakeUp) (4.0KiB) password=Password (4.0KiB) shareFolder=off (4.0KiB) user=User (4.0KiB) wakeUp=off (4.0KiB) And / media /My Video /[ModSettings] /nfs /Sumvision (24.0KiB) [parent directory] folder=hdd_movie_Action (4.0KiB) host=192_168_0_104 (4.0KiB) mac=ABABABABABAB (only needed for wakeUp) (4.0KiB) shareFolder=off (4.0KiB) wakeUp=off (4.0KiB) I insert a usb stick into the front after the HDR has booted up as I do with the pc test file but nothing appears in the media/blue (button)/usb directory. I hope there is enough info (not too much) for some help Cheers Andy PS the sumvision can see all pc on network under network share menu heading, and can see the Hummy under Upnp menu heading.
