On a MAX2Play installation I suffer mounting problems with my Synology NAS server. When installing PicorPlayer with Jivelite or OpenElec connecting to my NAS server it ALWAYS works fine. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong by following the Max2play instructions. If I have to do such things like mounting outside of Max2play, there is no more reason for me to use Max2Play anymore.
What am I doing wrong?
Max2play: //192.168.0.40/music mnt/music cifs user=*****,password=********,sec=ntlm,iocharset=utf8
Error: no mountingpoint set
On PicorePlayser: mount -t -v cifs -0 username=*****,password=********,//192.168.0.40/music /mnt/music
Thanks for your help18. April 2017 at 11:49 #28320
Please have a look on the below 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
If encountering problems with setting up shares you may reset the configuration file on Settings-Page („Reset configs to Max2Play delivery configuration“).

Have you tried mounting with a different user login and following Mohammad’s guidelines? We have a Synology DiskStation here in our offices and regularly mount paths on Max2Play devices without issues, so I do not think that Synology is the problem.12. Juni 2017 at 11:37 #29499
Firstly, please make absolutely sure that your folders and files are do not have special rights or encryptions. This can trip up the Pi in recognizing a share.24. Juni 2017 at 11:54 #29696
made it work again.
The pi was not able to resolve the IP for the name „Diskstation“ (still don’t know why).
So I put the IP itself into the mount.
BUT: Since yesterday samba doesn’t seem to work at all on my max2play installation. Mounts don’t work, after hitting „Netzwerk Geräte anzeigen“ the list is empty.
EDIT: After changing the mount to
//10.0.0.2/music /mnt/musik cifs user=user,password=password,sec=ntlm,iocharset=utf8,vers=3.0
it works again. But still „Netzwerk Geräte anzeigen“ generates an empty list.
May this be related to the latest Samba-Scurity-Updates on my Synology?

mount goes successfully with the following message:
Directory created: /mnt/volume1/Music
Mountpoint successfully added
but yet, when LMS is set to scan /mnt/volume1/Music,
it sees no files.
yes, the /mnt/volume1/Music folder shows, but it’s not really Synology NAS.
what is going on?23. Juli 2018 at 9:12 #36733
Please share the specifics of your mount. Make sure you have no special rights or restrictions on your folders and files, change your username and password for login creating a new one on your drive and make sure you have the same mount format in your drive.
