Plex and DS718+, won't detect any mediafiles

Postby oRBIT » Thu Oct 12, 2017 8:51 pm

Just installed latest PlexPass Plex on my DS718+. But when trying to add a library there's a problem.
I can't pick a subfolder. If I've got a folder called <volume1/Movies/Whatever>, I don't see the <whatever> folder, only the <movies> folder. Even if I put movies in the <Movies> folder it doesn't find any files at all (and yes, I've refreshed).
Anyone knows what I am doing wrong?
I've used Plex for quite a few years with my DS415+ but never had issues like this.

Sound like a permission problem to me.
