Hello friend. I just acquired a vmg8825 router and attached my ext hhd with my music files to it. I can see all the files from my Mac and from my iPad, but sonos can not find them.  pathway ought to be 192-168.1.1/ nmt/ usb2_sds2/sonos or any variation of this. no way can I make it work.  Please help!

File sharing permissions? Firewall?

Also, version of the Sonos OS in use? SMB version set on the NAS software running on this router?

pathway ought to be 192-168.1.1/ nmt/ usb2_sds2/sonos or any variation of this. no way can I make it work.  Please help!

Well for a start it would be //192.168.1.1/mnt/usb...  (without any spaces)

yes sorry for the mistype //192.168.1.1/ mnt  results in  “no mnt share on this computer”. sonos version 11.3   I can not find the smb version on the vmg8825 router. I know that can be a issue ?   usb harddisk fomated to Macos extended 

Darn. Just talked on the phone with sonos support.  Very friendly lady who new absolutely nothing about setting op the library from ext hdd.  Thought I had to connect my hdd to the computer ? started reading op from the handbook, oh wrong page ?   I wished her a good day 

 

found it ! as I thought it was a pathway problem.  the right pathway is //192.168,1,1/(usb2_sda2)sonos
