Why it is so complicated to set my NAS on my roon core. My Nas is on, plug in the network and Roon don’t se it. Make it easy please. I enter the adresse like this //192.168.0…/music and nothing…my Asus laptop, my Ipad or my Android phone or Sonos see automaticly the network . We have just to click on the Nas et Bingo.
It’s very not simple with roon. Forget the path please. I try different solutions. I red the tutorial. It’s not clear and not just for me.
A post was split to a new topic: How to connect Synology NAS to Roon
Why don’t you set up a network shared drive for the Roon core, such as say R:, then you can use that just like any other drive.
Thanks for the feedback here. At the present time, we only support manually adding network storage locations, but I can certainly take a look with you to resolve this issue.
Can you let me know - What kind of NAS are you trying to add to Roon? What is the model/manufacturer?
Just to clarify, you tried using the different notations from our Add Folders By Path guide?
- If your Roon Core is running on Windows, the path to your networked folder might look like this:
- If your Roon Core is running on Mac or Linux, the path to your networked folder might look like this:
- After you’ve entered the network path in Roon, enter the credentials required to access your NAS. If a username, password, or workgroup isn’t required to access your NAS, just leave the relevant fields blank and click Add Folder
It looks like the notation you were using above is with a forward-slash, when you should be using
smb: before the forward slash.
Can you please share a screenshot of the error message that appears in Roon when you try to add the share?
I’nm sorry for the delay. I have a Synology DS218. I try to add folders by path but it does’t works. My core is a Nucleus. Question: were I can find to right adress or path. I really don’t understand what to do. I have a folder name Music in my Nas. the Nas software is install on my laptop Windows 10. But I really don’t know what to do.
OK I find my new path //192.168.1.167/music . I can see my music on NAS but when I try to add directory I can’t import the entire catalogue but just one file by file. What can I do to star the global import?
Can you share a screenshot of what you’re seeing in Roon? You should be able to select the top-level music directory and press “Select This Folder” to import all tracks from the folder.
There should also be an “activity spinner” in the top right-hand corner letting you know the progress. Do you see this on your end as well?
Oh thank You Noris. It worked
Happy to help @pierre_jubinville!
