I’ve had Roon running from a Synology NAS (Core running from SSD connected to NAS via USB). It performed very well, albeit slow at times. I’ve spend the past several years saving for a “dream” system, that included a McIntosh 8900, which I just purchased and set up Friday. The Mac is currently being fed by a Node 2i. My last piece was to upgrade my core from the Synology to a STi5. I restored a backup to the STi5 and all seemed well.
BUT…I’ve spent the last 2.5 days trying to get Roon to see my network share and I don’t know what else to do. I’ve read every post on this forum and nothing is helping. SMB is enabled, I’ve tried every version of my network path I can think of…yes, I can get to the files via my windows 10 PC. IT WAS WORKING!
I’ve even added the “local” term into the path. Roon is loading and connecting to my QoBuz account.
Question: Do I have to mount the network folder within SonicOrbiter first and then add it to Roon? I’ve tried that too to no avail. Some of these screen shots may show the music file as All Music. In an act of desperation, I ultimately changed it to All_Music in order to eliminate the space, thinking that may be causing a problem. Please someone, for the love of God, help me!! Not being able to listen to the system as I intended is killing me! Although the turntable hooked up to it never sounded better.
sonincTransporter only says “Drive Mounter reconfigured successfully.” But it doesn’t give an visual confirmation that’s occurred. So although I get that message, it doesn’t seem to actually mount the drive.
Perhaps I need to add the “Synology DS218+” into it? But maybe that’s why you need to type in “local” into the address. I’m more confused than ever and very disappointed that I can’t get the STi5 to run as intended.
Thank you Noris. I did enter the name/password combo.
I’m even more at a loss now. I’ve reinstalled my original Core (running an SSD attached via USB to the Synology NAS. As an earlier user suggested, I was accessing locally. So I created a “test” folder on my Nas. Tried to point to it and filled it with a test files.
