No longer scanning Network drive

Post by Kermitude »

Can anyone help please

Yesterday no issues, tonight all off a sudden Media Monkey not accessing my Network drive (all my music is stored there)

There are no issues with the drive at all, I have just put some new music onto it, started up MM and tried to scan drive and nothing, and when I test playing a song, it tells me it is inaccessible !

It does not even show up when I try to relocate drive

Many thanks in advance for your help :)

I should point out, it is only MM5 which cannot access the drive, every other programme which has access to my Network can find a play music on my drive, including My Sony AV Unit

*** Just out of curiosity, I down loaded and installed MM4, and it found all my network and music no issues.

Maybe I should forget about why I upgraded to MM5 (its not the first issue I have had with it).

Is it a Mapped Drive or are you using the UNC (\\DEVICENAME\folder) Path to access the network drive?

Currently it's a Mapped drive, which is no longer showing in MM5, but is Showing MM4

In that case, it's likely that Windows changed the driveID, you can fix this with manually re-assigning the drive: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... sign_Drive
