Hello. I'm new to this and have tried for hours to do the above. Hoping someone can steer me in the right direction.

Trying to mount the storage mentioned and not having any joy. I believe I should be doing this rather than samba. I could be wrong. Hoping someone can help with the below questions

What do I input as mount point?
What do I put in as share name?
Do I keep with cifs as share type?
Do I need to add a username and password?
Do I need to amend the options?

(Basically everything other than ip address )

Hope someone can assist.

Cheers

I think you're a little short on detail :(

What type of computer and what operating system is LMS running on :confused:

Mount point = anything you like here, it doesn't matter
IP Address = IP address of your MyCloud
Share name = Share name
Share Type = CIFS
User Name = you?
Password = your password for the share
Options = uid=1001,gid=50,vers=1.0

Thanks for your reply - still no joy. I tried to attach what ive done but it wont let me attach from a mobile.

mount point = /mnt/piradio
ip address - ip address of my cloud home
share name: beans (NO idea if i can put this or if there is a specific share name?)
share type - cifs
username - beans (IS this something i should have created prior to filling this in?)
password - the password i would like to set..
options - same as you

I've alse enabled the additional filesystem. Is there anything else i should be doing prior to this? When i use pcp- lms i get a message saying[Error] Disk mount error try to reboot.

When i reboot i get a message saying mount: //(my wd ip address)/beans is not a valid block device
