    I am having great difficulty setting the mount point for my music files. From other posts on the slimdevices forum I’m not the only one who has had this problem. The “help” is confusing and ambiguous and so I would suggest that an example would be very helpful. So why not use my set up as the example:

    I have a Synology DS 214. I have created a folder called “music” and my albums are in a sub- folder called FLAC. I know the IP address of the 214.

    I have no idea whether the 214 is nfs or cifs and no idea how to find out.

    So what is ” PATH” ? Is it music ?? What do I put in the second box? – /mnt/music/ ?

    How do I find out whether to use nfs or cifs?

    Hi iansr,
    Path is the path the folder with your files is in. So you type the “IP address or name of your server”/music/FLAC
    Mountpoint is the path where your squeezebox server or other extensions can reach your folder, you can just use the example /mnt/share
    cifs is the typical network share for Windows systems and nfs typical for Linux. So use the former, usually.
    Then in the options you can also copy and paste the example and then change the name and password to the name and password of your network share.

    Got a USB Flash drive on mine. I log in and did this:

    mkdir /media/64G_USB_Flash
    apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils
    mount /dev/sda1 /media/64G_USB_Flash/

    Added this to /ect/samba/samba.conf can add it by typing:

    nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

    comment = 64G_USB_Flash
    read only = no
    path = /media/64G_USB_Flash
    guest ok = yes
    public = yes
    writable = yes
    available = yes
    create mask = 0664
    force directory mode = 2775

    At the end of it.

    I all so under the ####### Authentication ####### I change the security = to share so like this:

    security = share

    Then don’t need a password to go to it’s folder and save files to it.

    All so added my workgroup = rday Use what ever workgroup name on your LAN you have. I just do my 1ST initial and last name.

    Can save it by CTRL O and quit out of the edit with CTRL X. It shows it at the bottom the ^ means Press CTRL.

    Then restarted samba with:

    /etc/init.d/samba restart

    Then can easy save it by going to the Max2Play “FILESYSTEM MOUNT” It will show up there.

    Mine looks like this:

    UUID=4E4F-2C00 then /media/64G_USB_Flash then exfat then defaults

    Said save it and now on reboots it mounts it.

    Sort of hard to know that info just to put it in the web page of it.


    will show it’s UUID and Type. So can type it in the web page of Max2play. I guess after you make a folder can then use the webpage to mount it. I don’t think you can do it all from the Max2play web page.

    Can’t type all the same as I used. Use your own. Common sense. Like were I mounted mine and the UUID will not be the same.
