New ASUS can't connect to DiskStation ?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


A few facts that may affect the answer....

I just cracked open an ASUS Transformer 2-in-1. No, not a great 2-in-1 by any means, but hopefully enough to run JRiver to a DAC for non-critrical listening (outdoor-patio environment).


Anyway. The ASUS is running Win 8.1 and is 32 bit (hopefully that doesn't present any compatibility issues).


I installed the trial version of JRiver. When I go into settings I can't point to the Diskstation. I know that the ASUS can "see it" because it shows up with all my music in File Explorer.


Can someone tell me why I wouldn't see it in the JRiver Options --> File Location list?


I do intend to go ahead any add another license to my existing JRiver license, but wanted to make sure that all will work with

my new laptop first.

Have you mapped the diskstation music folder as a drive location on the asus? JRiver might not see it if it's only showing as a network location in File Explorer.


On my Win 8.1 system file Explorer under This PC it shows as another drive .... Music(\\diskstation) (Z: )

JRiver sees this mapped drive but not any of my network locations


Map Network Drive is an icon in the File Explorer ribbon.
