Description of Issue

Roon stopped seeing my network share. All albums in my network folder were unavailable. In attempting to fix the issue I deleted the location and tried to reinstate it and now I get either an unexpected error message or an Invalid pathway message depending on how I type in the pathway. I probably have the wrong pathway and am looking for help figuring out the correct path. The music files are on a Sooloos MC200 hardrive. I’m not sure when the files became unavailable on Roon as a lot of the music I stream is through Tidal and Roon has always been seamless. As a test I can play the files through Meridian Control PC on my Windows laptop.

Hi @Keith_Glover1,

Thanks for your report. We have a known issue occurring with NTFS formatted drives. A temporary fix is to use a Windows machine to do a chkdsk /f on the drive. Alternatively, making a backup of the drive and formatting it to exFAT is another workaround. I had the same issue as you and migrating over to exFAT vs NTFS was my fix.

Let me know if you have any other issues after trying!


@Wes - is the issue with NTFS solely with Sooloos systems, or more general?

I hope you folks will find a fix for NTFS drives for my Nucleus +. Periodically, after adding new music to the drive, I have to scan the hard drive for Roon recognition of the drive.

Hi Wes,
The music drive is located within the MC200 not the NUC. I don’t mind removing the hard drive and doing a chkdsk but if I make a copy with a changed file system will that adversely affect the MC200 and the Control PC software that I use to rip CD’s?
Thank you,
