Hey all,

I'm a new Mac convert and am having trouble referencing a network storage device I have on my home network.

In windows, the syntax for referencing this shared drive is:

//hpmediavault/mediashare

I can't seem to get slimserver to scan the NAS directly (as opposed of doing it via iTunes, which kills the oppty to play FLAC files). Even though I can map to this shared drive via the Finder ok (it shows up as "MEDIASHARE"), I have not been able to successfully reference this location via an application. I've tried the following syntaxes:

//hpmediavault
//hpmediavault/mediashare
//MSHOME;HPMEDIAVAULT-1
//MSHOME;HPMEDIAVAULT-1;mediashare
//NODOMAIN;@HPMEDIAVAULT/MEDIASHARE

When I click Command-I on the mapped drive in Finder, I get the following for its location:
cifs://NODOMAIN;@HPMEDIAVAULT/MEDIASHARE

But that syntax doesn't work either, the error msg is always "...doesn't seem to be a valid directory, try again"

Any help you can provide would be really appreciated.

Darren

launch the terminal app and at the prompt, enter the "df" command to see the mounted volumes.. The accessible path will be the in right-most column

I don't know about network storage, but for normal storage on an external drive the syntax is

/Volumes/Drivename/FolderName
