I am helping a friend to setup a new Nucleus. The Nuc has an internal SSD disc onto which I want to copy music from a NAS, which is connected to the same network as the Nuc. I want to do the copying from my PC (Windows 10) and NOTvia the Roon app.
You should see the Rock device on the network in Explorer and then you can navigate to the storage drive, as for the nas if the folder is shared on the network then you can mount it on the pc as a network drive then simply drag and drop the files as required.
Hi @Jaan_Warnhoff ---- Thank you for the post and sharing your feedback with us. The insight is appreciated and my apologies for the delay on my end.
Please do correct if I summarize any of the above information incorrectly but as it stands currently, the mentioned NAS can be accessed without issue on the Win10 PC you noted in your report. However, the Nucleus can not be accessed over the network from the PC and as such you are unable to copy any music onto the the internal SSD installed in the Nucleus, correct?
I agree with the suggestion made above by @Carl, that you should try to either ping the IP addressed being assigned to the Nucleus from the PC using the provided procedure or loading an application like FING on the PC to scan your network for devices. This will be a good starting point in troubleshooting this behavior
Additionally, if you were to open a web browser of your choosing and type in the IP address of the Nucleus are you able to successfully reach the devices Web UI?
Yes, your summary is correct. I tried to access the Nuc by entering the IP address, but then a dialog box came up asking for userid & password… Wonder what those could be…
Anyway, I use an app called Net Analyzer with my iphone and that app will scan all units connected to a router. It will show the PC, NAS and the Nucleus so they are all connected, but the Nuc cannot be accessed
