Description of Issue
I have all my CDs as files on a USB hard disk. About 1500 CDs. But, I would like to connect that “library” to Core as well. But, perhaps it is not possible?
Plug it in and then add it to roon through settings, storage.
What type of file format are they?
Roon does not like WMA files but flac or WAV are fine.
They are WAW files.
The Naim Uniti uses my home network. My Roon core is a Mac Pro. My Qobuz plays over Roon as well ad my iTunes files from the MacPro computer. But, I am not sure why the ROON app does not find Naim Uniti Atom on my network.
The USB disk connected to the Naim streamer all the time and is available through Naim’s own app.
Thanks! Then I know. No need to worry then.
Not so fast - if they are WAV format files, then there may be an issue with the metadata in the files. Naim uses a proprietary method of handling metadata I believe. See:
Roon has a policy of not applying user edits to user files. I want an option for the Roon editor to update my personal music files. I have twice come to Roon, leaving the first time after a disastrous transfer of my music. I subsequently learned the reason is because my metadata is in a proprietary form of WAV via Naim and the reason the transfer was so disastrous was because Roon is not able to interpret my metadata. I have now come to Roon a second time, knowing I will need to to re-edit …
Are you saying roon doesn’t see the Atom at all or it does see it as a player but not attached files?
My issue with a USB disk attached to a my Naim Uniti Atom not being seen by ROON core was solved. I just moved the disk from Atom to my MacBook pro and then my library of CDs appeared in ROON. Simple!
