Network Drives

Postby SteveMcdona » Sat Nov 04, 2017 11:21 am


I am using Windows 10, MediaMonkey and a Western Digital Network Hard Drive. I like to rip my CD's to my Music Library that is on the network drive. When I use the Rip Audio CD command and the Rip CD window appears, I press the Folder Icon to select the Folder to where I wish to rip the CD . At this point there is a long delay and more often than not a "Not Responding" message in the Rip CD Window. Sometimes when I get the folder window for the drive it will tell me the chosen folder is not accessible. For me this is very time consuming and not very slick IMHO. Am I missing something here. I would really appreciate some guidance.

Instead of browse can you confirm that if you use Copy/paste from Windows explorer address bar there is no freeze?

After Microsoft released Windows 10 there is common known issue that some non Microsoft network shares are not shown in Network list and its paths needs to be typed manually (This is not an issue with MMW or WD but with QNAP, D-Link, Synology, ...).

If you have at least one scanned folder from WD you should be able to browse share without any issues.
