N00b Question HELP!

Post by Sonit » Sat Nov 05, 2011 3:13 pm

Sorry if I am being really dumb but I have a Western Digital 2TB My Book World Edition and I am trying to setup the Twonky media server with a folder I created on the root of the NAS drive but when I add the content directory twonky does not pick it up.

The root file is called "Videos" in which I have several folders (films, tv etc) but no matter if I add the full file location of just the root it does not work. It only seems to work if I put videos into the public folders on the NAS drive but I don't want my files in there. The Videos folder has the same permissions as the public one

Please help I want to start using this

I believe WD have configured Twonky to only scan directories under the public share.

You should try asking how to change this behaviour over on the WD forum- http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-Wor ... /mbw_world
