Can't transfer files with filezilla - Ferorake - 10-25-2020

Hi guys,
I'm here asking a thing that I didn't find a solution for searching on the forum. 
The problem is the same as:
http://moodeaudio.org/forum/showthread.php?tid=2167

But the solution doesn't work for me. 
I have an external HDD perfectly working on the RPi4 with moode, and I can't transfer files to it with filezilla. I get access with pi\moodeaudio (id\pass) and port 22, but when I try to transfer files in the folder /media/, I get an error. I can transfer files from HDD to PC, but not from PC to HDD. 

Any ideas how can I solve it?

Are the samba shares working? I am assuming your using a Windows PC
In windows open file explorer.
On the left hand side scroll down to Network
Click on the > icon to expand Network
If there is a computer icon with the word MOODE next to it - click on it - it will show the MOODE shares. One of them will be your hard drive folder. You should be able to drop files/folders into it.

SMB works, I have it on an OPPO device.
Yesterday I had that icon and couldn't open what was inside, now I neither have the icon called MOODE.

So you can see the moode smb shares on a different device. 

Try doing this. In File Explorer click on Network and in the bar above insert \\moode and hit enter. See screenshot

If I do that - the shares appear - the first one "music" is my USB drive - see below

May also be worth checking your drive permissions - you didn't say what error you received. 
In the following screenshot I've ssh'd into moode and navigated to my usb drive folder "music" showing the permissions.
The permissions are drwxrwxrwx

Alternatively, if your familiar with WinSCP you can see permissions on the right hand side as per this screenshot

Hi Ferorake,

If I am right, Filezilla uses te FTP (File Transfer Protocol) protocol to transfer your files and .. MoOde uses SMB as a protocol to copy your files.

If you have a Windows PC, try accessing your Raspberry by entereing \\Moode in your explorer screen (Windows E)
From that screen, you can copy files to or from your Raspberry.
