Problem adding WD My Cloud NAS on the network
#31
This is same issue as in another post. To fix first remove the NAS config then run cmd below from ssh, then create NAS config again.

mkdir /mnt/NAS

I'm still not able to determine how is possible for the code to delete the NAS subdirectory. Which Build method, Direct or second USB-SDCard) did you use to Build moOde?

Hi Tim

I updated to moOde 4.1 via ssh from version 4 on an existing SD card following the instructions on another thread

I have tried your suggestion to removed the NAS then ran the mkdir /mnt/NAS cmd but just got a permission denied message as per the screen print below

Tried mounting my NAS again but still not working

Try

IP_ADDRESS/Public

or

MYCLOUD-AP41K0.local/Public

Hi Tim,

I am making some progress - changing to 'MYCLOUD-AP41K0.local/Public' worked and I now have a green tick that shows it has been mounted successfully.

In the Browse pane, I now see a NAS option. When I clicked on NAS, I could see MyCloud so I clicked to 'Update this folder'. I get a message saying 'Updating' but it kept updating overnight and didn't seem to be able to find my music files.  I may need to change the location of the files in MyCloud so that it can find them.

Hi Tim,

I still can't get Moode 4.1 to find the music files on my My Cloud NAS.  I have a green tick in the 'Music Source Config' window, which suggests that the NAS has been configured properly. I can see 'My Cloud' when I click on 'NAS' in the 'Browse' panel but the folder is empty.  How can I get it to load my music files? Clicking on 'Update this folder' doesn't seem to work.

The  music on my MyCloud is located in Files/Family/Music.   In the Music folder I have about 400 seperate folders with the band or astist's name and in each of these I have individual folders with the name of each album, in which I have saved the music tracks. 

I read your advice to another user on this thread (also called Martin) and tried using the command

sudo mkdir /mnt/NAS

but got the reply

cannot create directory '/mnt/NAS' : file exists.

I have been using previous generations of Moode with my music files stored on a couple of USB stiicks attached to the pi but want to move to a NAS so that I can build a second pi-based music player to allow me to listen to my music in another room.  This is my first attempt at configuring a NAS but I must be doing something wrong.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks

Martin

You will have to examine the MPD log to see why the files are not being indexed.

cat /var/log/mpd/log

I use a WD NAS.
SMB
IPaddr/Public files are in Seagate-NAS/Public/Music
UserID
Passwd
SeagateDR

I needed to use IPaddr instead of the NAS name and forgot to use the Public share. Took me ages to get it right. Best of fortune getting there.

cat /var/log/mpd/log  command doesn't seem to be doing anything. Do I need to put sudo before it?

sudo not needed. The log might have been automatically cleared by the maintenance task.

Open Sources screen, click RESCAN then wait a bit, then view the log.
