I’m having issues trying to get the music library on my mac to connect as a network drive. I’ve tried a couple different methods, so help with either of them would be appreciated (basically if i could get one of these to work, that would be great)
Shared folder/server - 2013 MacPro connected to network (Orbi) via ethernet cable.
Raspberry Pi 4B w/ HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro, Volumio running version 2.778
On my Mac:
In my system preferences, I go to “Sharing” section and turned on file sharing for the folder with my library. In the Options it is set to share as SMB and AFP. My account/username is set to read/write and “Everyone” is set to “Read Only.” It says file sharing is on and I have a standard IP address (XXX.XXX.X.XX).
I go to Settings/Sources. Set the NAS IP address as the the IP address in the sharing menu of my Mac in the same format (I tried both on its own and with smb:// before it). For the path I copy and pasted the path from the folder on my Mac (/Users/username/Music/Music/Media.localized). Enter my user name and password.
I get the following error:
Error in mounting share MacPro
(22): Invalid argument. Refer to the mount cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Alternately, I’m already running a Plex server on this machine, which brings me to…
In Plex settings I turned on “Enable the DLNA server” and saved changes. I didn’t modify any of the other settings.
On my modem/router:
UPnP is turned on.
UPnP Renderer and DNLA Browser are both on and active. I don’t see anything showing up. Where should this library be showing up if it does work?
I realize these are both pretty different methods, but any help with either of these would be appreciated. I would be happy with just getting one of these to work!
