A couple of years ago I had similar frustration with /mnt/Music. So I learned some basic things about samba and permissions and then poked noob-ly at the problem for many days. I have long since forgotten what my train of investigation was……. but I did land on a solution that has continued to work. I thought I’d add my experience to your thread, for the benefit of our future selves 🙂
In Max2play Filesystem Mount, my parameters are:
//192.168.1.5/c/media/Music <<<<Yes the use of IP address was important
cifs <<<<I played with NFS, but cifs works for me.
user=<myusername>,password=<mypasswd>,sec=ntlm,iocharset=utf8,vers=1.0,uid=squeezeboxserver <<<<The vers and uid declarations were keys to solving my permissions problem, although I do not recall exactly why.
