Brand new Nucleus purchased directly from Roon with 4TB internal storage already loaded
MacBook Pro and Nucleus are directly connected to Apple Time Capsule via ethernet cables. Time capsule connected via ethernet to wifi router and modem
No audio devices are connected at this time as the first step is to get music files loaded onto nucleus. Once files are loaded I will be connecting the Nucleus to a Benchmark DAC3
Thousands - but as a “pilot” I tried to move one song file and was unsuccessful
I am new to “Roon”. To keep it simple my desire is to load my music library (presently ALAC files residing on my old Apple Time Capsule) onto the Nucleus. I will then cease to use the Time Capsule as it is old etc.
I have connected the Nucleus directly to the time capsule and for simplicity I also connected our MacBook Pro directly to the Time Capsule. Using Finder I can see both the files in the Time Capsule and the “data” folder in the Nucleus. I try to “drag and drop” a song file to the Nucleus and I get an error message that says “Modifying ‘Nucleus’ requires an administrator name and password”. It then advises that I click “authenticate” but I don’t see that option anywhere (might be staring me in the face but I don’t see it).
I have confirmed through the Roon web administrator menu that the software is up to date, running, that the internal storage is OK etc. I am connected to the nucleus as a “guest”.
