Description Of Issue
Through my iphpne8 i am trying to gain access to my music on my Seagate Central NAS drive via ROON’s Network Shared Location. ROON does not see the NAS drive despite that I can see all my music via my iphone via FileBrowserGO. When I enter the IP address of the NAS drive (either CIFS:// or AFP://), ROON indicates “UnexpectedError”.
Please help.
Thanks, Greg

My Seagate was formulated incorrectly. I got it to work with smb:// Thanks, Greg
