I have my music files on a network drive (always on) and would love to access the music without having to have a computer running. It seems the Duet will work if I upload my music to mp3tunes.com.

Does anybody know if there is a way to use a Squeezebox from a network drive without a computer?

What NAS box do you have? Some of them can have SqueezeCenter install on them.

Have a look in the 3rd Party Hardware forum for loads of information: http://forums.slimdevices.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18

SimpleShare NAS 160.

Thanks for the info. I'll take a look in that forum.

Personally i would doubt you'll get the server running on that hardare, it is very basic. Looks to be based round the Broadcom NAS on a Chip.

Your options are to either get a more powerful NAS (which can handle SC7 and has community support), stick with using a regular PC to access the files on the NAS, build a small low power PC to act as a server (in this case you are as well removing the drive from the NAS), or using MP3Tunes.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't think it would work as my NAS is very basic.

I appreciate the help.
