OK this is posted on the Sonos forun as well, but I thought I'd come on here as well and see if any Synology users had a Sonos and had set this up.
I can get Sonos to see files on my C drive and play, it just gets upset when I try to point it at the NAS. I have a Synology DS411J.
It's really easy to setup my Sonos to index my music library from the NAS because when you go
Music > Setup Music Library ... > Add share > Add music stored in folders on the network
the wizard prompts you to give a user and password to access the drive, and it works and is very simple.
when I go
Add share > Add my Audible books
It's fine when I set the "Location of Audio Files" in Audible Manager to be a folder on the C drive.
When I change the folder in Audible Manager to a network drive, it prompts me for the user name and password, which I enter and it all works fine in Audible Manager. When I go to Sonos and do the setup, it can't connect to the drive. Interestingly the error message I get varies on the format I use when setting up the folder in Audible Manager.
1) If I simply select the folder by browsing to it in Audible Manager, then the path starts with the drive letter assgined and the error I get in Sonos is that it can't find the path
2) If I type in a UNC path \\Diskstations\Music\.. or \\ip address of nas\music\.. the error I get say that either the username, password, disc label is of the wrong format
I know it's not the user name or the password, because it works fine in the Audbile Manager.
Any ideas how to get this working? Should I be using the Synology guest account to access the drive? ...?
All suggestions appreciated
