Description Of Issue
I have been attempting to transfer my iTunes files from my Mac Mini to the Roon with no success.
The OS on my Mac Mini is High Sierra.
I followed the procedures described in your manual to transfer files to the Roon. I created Music file as a share file on the Mac. Into it I transferred my .xml file. The share file on the Mac shows this file and the files in the Roon. The Roon shows the same files that are in the share file.
The problem is the next step. When I go through the “Add Network Share” step I do as it directs. I enter the smb address, name and password. When I hit the prompt to activate I consistently get the same message: In a pink box the message "Could Not Connect to Share: Unauthorized.
I have had a couple of Mac Techs look at the share file and the Mac and they tell me it is set up correctly. I have no Firewalls in place to restrict communication. I have tried different user names and share paths and get the same result.
I have been at this for three weeks and seem to be getting nowhere. Is there some step I am missing that is preventing the transfer of the iTunes files. This should be easy, but, it is proving to be near impossible.
One other thing. While the Roon shows the Music file with the .xml file it appears to be “virtual” no data is extracted from the .xml file on the Roon. Help!
