PMS can't see any other hard drives

Postby mach7 » Sun May 26, 2013 10:35 pm


Sorry I just installed ubuntu a few days ago and am feeling the growing pains so this is probably a noob question. Basically, I installed PMS and it runs but it doesn't recognize any of my other hard drives when I try to share them. They show up in ubuntu under devices but PMS can't see them. Samba doesn't see them either. Any advice?

Thanks for your time!

I ran into the same problem. You'll need to manually type in the path to the other hard drive in the "folder name" input box.

If you right click on the hard drive and go to properties it will show you location and name. The location should be "media" and the name with be something like "FA686B42686AFCAF". So in the folder name field instead of "/home/<user id>" that shows be default you'll put "/media/<hard drive name>/<path to the dir you want to include>"
