The roon core / app no longer recognizes my HiFi Rose 150B. After struggling with this for 4 hours last weekend, I was able to get Roon to recognize this device; but Roon has lost its mind and no longer sees this device. Nothing changed, since I was not home all week (getting cancer treatments).
I tried to recreate the steps that were previously successful in getting Roon to see the HiFi Rose 150B - but I have been unsuccessful. I removed/disconnected the HiFi Rose in Windows, reset the HiFi Rose and then reinstalled it as a networked drive in Windows. Then I tried to map to this within the Roon Windows client - without success.
What is going on here? Is there a solution that I am overlooking?
Your screenshot of the Network share path in Roon shows you attempting to connect directly to the Rose, and not to a shared folder that has been defined within the Rose drive mapped to a Drive in Windows?
Can you ensure that the Rose is set up to share a folder called rosedisk to the network, and does it support the \\rose-3b\ convention of network address, or do you need to use the smb://rose-3b/ convention?
As an Rose user, I can only say:
Don’t use your RS150 as a NAS for Roon, because it’s really slow and unsecure.
While you’re using Rock:
Put the SSD (sorry, you’ve to backup the datas from there) into your Rock PC.
I rebooted the roon core, removed the HiFi Rose from windows and reset the SMB sharing setting on the Rose. I rebooted my windows PC and then re-established the connections - that seemed to get the HiFi Rose to start talking to my Roon Core.
I guess I will need to remember this for next time. This is a tedious process.
Thank you for your reply. This networking stuff absolutely mystifies me.
I am ripping the discs directly to the HiFi Rose SSD. When I am done ripping, I will explore transferring or backing up all the data to the core.
This networking stuff has lots of potential but is a real PITA to implement. You would think after 20 years of this (thinking that networking was a significant factor when Win 2000 / XP hit the street), they would have all the connectivity issues resolved.
