I’ve upgraded to Pi4 and don’t seem to remember this issue with my other pi. In the past I just opened my file manager „My Computer“/network and there is was.
However, in windows I can see my player on the network and I can see the shared folder, but when I click on it to open it, it (windows I think) asks for a username and password.

Going back to your instructions, when you say „connect the network drive to your Windows PC“, I’m really not sure what you mean. I thought this is what samba does.
I’d really appreciate if you could spell this bit out a little more please.

And your instructions above, Do you mean in my browser, and if so should look like this
http:\\192.168.1.000000000000000\max2playshare. I tried this and it did’nt work.

But even if it did, would this, once done allow me access to the files via windows file manager as I need access to backup my music to the cloud. Thanks for your help.
