Description Of Issue

I am trying to remap my Synology DS418play NAS to Roon after switching my internet service. After the IP address switched on my DS418Play Roon no longer could connect.

I was able to successfully map the Synology network drive to my Lenovo Laptop. Here’s a screenshot my local directory I used to map to and how I am trying to type it into the network share in Roon:

Since its a PC I am using the Windows explorer file format (ie. \Martinique) as my way of connecting it to Roon.

Here’s what my PC looks like with the mapped drive:

I used to have it mapped but I remember having to type it the correct way for Roon to recognize the network drive. If I am able to map the drive to my Windows 10 PC I would think Roon should be able to see it as well.

Any ideas/suggestions on how to get this mapped would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

try using the new IP instead of the host name.

Hi !
Here my syno is named diskoboule, and the good path was \diskoboule.local\Music, so i would try \martinique.local\MARTINIQUE… for your network/nas.

Thanks for the help guys!! I got it mapped using the IP address. All set. I forgot that my Roon Rock core is running Linux. So I had to use SMB to map my Synology.


I set the IP address on my Synology as static in my separate reserve pool outside of my DHCP addresses and it works perfectly. Once I had it mapped I was able to select the directory folder where my music files reside. The mistake I made was trying to map the entire folder directory. I thought authenticating via the Synology admin vs a regular account might have been causing the issue but, it was trying to map the entire directory that created the error.

Thanks again for all of your help.
