Hi there my Name is Rolf and iam from Germany.
I got a WDTV Live, but since i bought shortly a 4 K TV (Samsung Q55Q80) , i need a new Player because the WDTV dont support x265 or even 4k.
So i bought a Vero4k+ and now i tried to find out how Kodi works.
I read a lot , and some things work great, but one thing i dont get to work.
I got a 3 TB USB Harddrive connected direktly via USB on the Vero4k, same Configuration as i got before on the WDTV live.
Whit the WDTV, there was no Problem to see the USB-Drive in TotalCommander as Networkdrive, so i can connect my PC with the USB-Drive and move Files from PC to the Drive with the Total Commander without any Problems. I could open 2 Mirrors in the Total Commander and move Files directly on the HardDrive without buffering on the PC.
Now i dont be able to see the Drive as Networkdrive. it dont shows up. I can connect via FTP,but i want to involve the Drive as Networkdrive in my Network, so in can involve them als Networkdrive in Total Commander whit a Driveletter - so i got it with the WDTV.
In Kodi i enabled FTP, SSH and Samba. FTP-Server, SSH-Server and Samba-Server are running.
In WORKGROUP i see a Samba 4.5.16- Debian Device. this is the Vero4k but only the interal Storage of the Vero - OSMC Home Directory, not the external USB-Drive. there is no directory to link to the USB-Drive.
Must i enable something in Kodi to give the Drive free ?
Can someone give me an Advice what to do, to see the external USB-Drive as Networkdrive. It was possible with the WDTV and this Device was 8 Year old. i cant believe this dont work with a modern Device like the Vero4k.
Excuse my lousy english.
Thanks and have a nice Day
