Hi Paden,

From the screen shot that you sent, you just configured the mount point, but also you have to configure External Drives on Max2Play – mountpoints for USB-Storage.

Please take a look on this information:

Network Shares (e.g. shares on Synology Diskstation with SMB/CIFS) are mounted following the example:
*Path (IP or hostname and Path): for type cifs: //IP-ADDRESS/PATH
*Mountpoint on Max2Play (for usage in Squeezebox Server or XBMC): /mnt/mountdir/ Mountpoint must be a subdirectory in /mnt/ OR /media/ and will be generated, if it is not existing.
*Type: mostly cifs (in special NFS setups nfs)
*Options (user, password and other options for network share): e.g. user=name,password=pass,sec=ntlm,iocharset=utf8
*important: always add to the options sec=ntlm!
*Note on NFS-Shares: you must use another Path and no user credentials in options! Example: IP-ADDRESS:PATH or *:PATH

Under External Drives on Max2Play – mountpoints for USB-Storage
there is a list that shows all external storages and their mountpoints. You may access the devices by their path in Squeezeboxserver or XBMC/Kodi. Important: the maximum partition size is 2TB. If using larger disks you need to divide the disk space into partitions smaller than 2TB.
