1. Try plugging the Mede8er into your PC via USB then delete all partitions you find (even 'unknown' ones), then try the format again from the Mede8er GUI.
2. Is this speed issue via wireless? Please provide more detail on your hardware configuration.
- If wireless include wardware, distance, walls, is dongle plugged into unit itself or are you using supplied USB extension?
- If wired include approx. length of cables, and every piece of hardware between Mede8er and source.
Thank you Insomniac, the advise about the Hard drive worked 100%. I am setting up the mede8er in the same room as the router and I am using the wireless dongle. I have tried the Network option, created a user for the mede8er on my pc, gave it sufficient rights, tried logged onto the pc with the mede8er without success. Just gets the message Login Failed. I have tried the wired route a s well, with a 2m flylead. Same result.
I then trien the NFS option as suggested on the forum somewhere. Downloaded and installed haneWIN NFS Server, configured it, set my exports like this:
d:\music -readonly -name:music 192.168.1.101
e:\movies -readonly -name:movies 192.168.1.101
e:\series -readonly -name:series 192.168.1.101
In the mede8er it is set like this:
This way I could see the files and browse them through the mede8er, but the speed is so slow it seems as if the mede8er is hanging. To move from one file to another takes about 1 min just to display the file information, artist, genre, track no etc etc.
Today, the mede8er could not logon to NFS for some reason so I checked the haneWIN NFS server settings. In the export section there are nothing, yet if I edit the export file the exports are there. I have now decided to pack the wireless dongle away untill such time someone comes up with an easy setup and config to make this all work fine. Maybe it's windows 7, I don't know. But now I will just copy the files I want to watch onto my portable drive or populate the internal drive with my media files as before. No biggie.
