Hi prod75,

There are 2 things to try that I can think of:

1) Make sure in the NFS scanning facility that you're looking for all media in the folders where the problem persists.

2) Make sure the permissions of the folders on the drive that aren't displaying files to the Med are the same as the folders that exhibit no issue. Full write access for all would be 777 though it may not be necessary to set them this high. That's why I suggest comparing problem folders to those that work and matching it.

I'm not the techie that the forum mods (or many other members here) are, but thinking your problem through suggest to me these 2 things to try first.

I hope this helps you.

Also for Windows 10 shares you use: username/pcname as the user name and the user account password for the password.

Example.....
Username: example@live.com/HTPC

Password: will be the password for example@live.com

Hi Fmedrano1977.
I tried using the approach you suggested but I still get the same login fail error.
I have no idea why this worked like a charm using a NAS and now only MED cannot access that drive (my MBP can access it perfectly)

Your storage source is it a nas or computer? In case of a windows computer it could be a rights issue. To check, there is a program called windows share manager. Search the forum for info on that one and you could also check within settings of your homegroup if sharing with password is checked out. If not do so.

If not a computer, ignore the above. If so, I hope this helps.

Hi Spe115.
My source storage is a hard disc connected to a Win10 mini-PC. I checked so many things...let me try to summarize what I did so far.
- Disabled Password Protection for File Sharing. This was tricky as I had a Guest account with no password set, and that prevented me from turning off the Password Protection.
- Removed the need to login using a password (using netplwiz).

What is strange is that the original problem was when I tried accessing the PC. Yesterday I entered the Admin user and password and it accepted. Then I saw the shared drive. When I tried connecting to it I got again the login screen and when I entered the exact same user and password I got the logon fail message.
Strange thing, this one asking for user and password to access a drive attached to the PC.

Anything else I can try?

I'm already considering removing Win 10 and installing Ubuntu. Any feelings about this option?

Thanks in advance for the help you're giving me.
Pedro

Hi Prod75,

Could you try installing Windows Share Manager?
http://wsm.jankamp.com/deployment/WSM.application

Attach your drive and let windows initialise the drive.
After opening the program you will see all your shares and on the right their status.
The shares that are correctly configured will turn green, if not for that drive, click on it and click "fix selected share(s) wich would provide the drive the proper read and write permissions and will turn it to green.

Best regards,

Hi Spe115.
Sorry, forgot to mention that I followed up on your advice and installed Windows Share Manager and the attached drive was "green".

Okay that is strange, for the moment i can't think of anything. Maybe someone else has any ideas.

Well, it took me some time and a lot of digging but I finally figured out the solution.
It turns out that you need to add a registry entry.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
Create a Dword parameter named IRPStackSize and give it a decimal value ranging from 11 to 50. After each change you need to go to Services and restart the Server service.
My problem was gone when I tried value 30.
Hope this helps other people having this problem.

I use HanesWIN NFS Server on my windows PC to share the drives, so much easier.

I tried that but for some very strange reason, some folders did not show up the content. Permissions were the same as the ones working properly.
