I am trying to load my music files onto a newly installed 8T internal SSD inside my Nucleus Plus
I have a full copy of my albums on an external USB drive, as well as on the NAS.
What is the easiest, and more importantly fastest way to do this?
When it comes to copying music to the internal drive you have to do it over the network, through a different PC that is setup to see both the NAS and the Nucleus Internal drive. Note that this can take a long time for a lot of music; especially if there is a wifi hop.
Thanks for checking up. I’m in the middle of transferring the files now. Unfortunately, it will take a month to transfer 7 tb of music from the Synology to the Nucleus via ethernet cable. It’s all hard wired. I wish there was a faster way, but apparently it is what it is.
Well, the Nucleus is wired by ethernet to a switch. The Synology is wired to the same switch. I’m using a Mac Pro desktop to monitor the transfer. I’m dragging files from the Synology to the internal storage on the Nucleus. The files are transferring at a rate of 10 gigs per hour.
Is there anything that I’m doing wrong?
@Rugby was correct for copying to the disc in the nucleus. I am suggesting a work around that is unsupported by roon but which could save you days of effort.
It’s a suggestion worth trying at relatively low cost.
