Description of Issue
Having a problem getting Roon to accept my NAS drive. Constantly get the message: “Could not connect to share: Host not found”.
In the “Choose music storage folder” then “Add network share” menu do I put in the Synology 220+ IP address and my local music folder address or do I put in the “smb://Synology._smb._tcp.local/with my local music folder”? Or is there something else I should be doing as I continue to get the Could Not Connect error flag.
Any help would be much appreciated. I did have it working years ago but have swapped out a lot of my computer hardware and am currently using an iMac.
Still having a problem connecting to my NAS. Interesting, however, the NAS connects to my Volumio server with no problems but when I try to enter the exact same connection information to Roon it will not connect.
Thanks for helping me trouble shoot this problem as I really wanted to use my NAS to store my local Flac files but I think I am going to use a different route. I have an old 3Tb disc that is not being used and I just ordered an external storage enclosure from Other World Computing and I think that I will just copy my NAS Flac files over to it and then connect it locally (USB) to my Roon ROCK. I know that will be less than optimal in keeping my music files up to date but if I make an effort to manually unplug the disc, physically connect it to my LAN, copy my new files to it and then reconnect it to my Roon ROCK. I know that requires a lot of steps and persistence to process but I am at my wit’s end with trying to get Roon to recognize my NAS. Other than that I can always fall back on my Volumio setup (which currently does work in this configuration) although I do like Roon so much better. In any event, thanks for all of your concern and help. Regards - Jeff
Thank you for your interest in my problem. I have used the NAS IP address just like I did with Volumio which worked in Volumio but not in Roon. I also tried pointing Roon to the mounted NAS volume but again a no go. Can you give me an example of a preferred NAS IP address with the appropriate \'s and /'s? I have the NAS IP address of my NAS but I also have a directory and a subdirectory for my Flac files at that NAS IP address. Not sure if I am stating my configuration correctly. Any thoughts?
