I’m new to VOLUMIO…so please don’t beat me if some of my questions sound a bit stupid
So far, I got the system working on a Tinkerboard and I managed to get Tidal and Qobuz running. Still struggling to get the NAS recognized, but I did not try hard and so far, I’m using a USB drive with my music.
I can scan the drive, find a lot of music (it’s 1.5T), but a significant part is not visible. I understand that Linux is a bit more tricky if it comes down to file names and special characters. Some of the music was copied via a Linux system from an internal hard drive, some I did copy via my MAC using Pandorra to access the USB drive.
I had a similar problem with the old Linux based system (that’s why I’m looking for a new and better solution), but I could access my music via the file structure of my hard drive and so even files that did not get properly recognized during the scanning, I could play.
On Volumio I can go to the library on the homepage, but that does not really show me the structure of my hard drive.
So my questions are:
Is there a way to access the file structure?
How can I find out why so many folders are missing in the scanning?
Do I have to give the files some special rights after I transferred them from my Mac to the USB drive?
The Tinkerboard is only a start, my final system will be a small computer with no fan from MSI with an M2 SSD for booting and internal hard drive for storing music. The system should drive a pretty High-End setup in my listening room (I’m running a company for designing speakers).
In the past, I used a few systems like Amarra and Audirvana on a Mac, JRiver and JPlay on Windows, AURELIC Aries and a Linux based system from a small company here in Germany…so I had all the pain with systems not running stable. As we use it here every day from the morning to the evening and switch a lot between internal music and Qobuz or Tidal, we might stress it a bit more than usual. And as my library was growing over years, tagged and ripped with different programs, it might be also not the easiest to read and identify.
Thanks for help in advance.
