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!

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

 

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 

 

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

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

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

File sharing permissions? Firewall?
