Description Of Issue
I just bought Nucleus.
How do I set storage folders and get the Roon Core to see them if they reside on my MacBook Pro?
How do I point to them? + Network Share? or +Add folder?

All I see is Nucleus and no way to see MacBook Pro folders. I have read tons of Roon articles on syntax for smb:// etc. and all I get is Invalid Patch name or Unexpected error.

I have set all music folder as shared. Under System Preferences, Sharing I see: Computers on your local network can access your computer at:
My music folder is at:

Please help.

Hi Greg !
I had read that article 3 times and tried to implement it. I missed the add Windows sharing part, and the need to enter a password and name. This time, I read it very carefully for the 4th time and executed it step by step. It worked !!
Thank you immensely !


Hi Greg,
I have Audible audio books on my MacBook Pro Mac OS X and also on my iPhone. I have downloaded 2 audiobook files from my browser based Audible player. They are on my MAC HD in a folder. They are .aax files
Can I get them into Roon? Does Roon support Audible .aax file formats?

Looks like you are of luck unless you can google a conversion app to one of the supported formats
