My brother is running Squeezebox Server on a RPI, however following a reboot the connected media always appears on a different port, requiring locating where the media has moved to & then a rescan 🙁
The drive is a Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2 TB USB 3.0 Portable 2.5 inch External Hard Drive.
Here’s the config page, can anyone see anything wrong?
Appreciate any help 🙂

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.

Hi Mohamamd, thanks for the reply, although I’m unclear as to what hasn’t been configured.
I’ve mounted the drives under:
External Drives on Max2Play – mountpoints for USB-Storage
Which in turn automatically populated:
Filesystem – mount network paths (Samba or NFS)
The “type” automatically detected is vfat, could it be that the drive is not formatted in the correct format?
Like I said all works fine until a reboot.
