Yep, I'm in the same boat as others using a 500S.

I had it working once, I set the share as /mnt/hdd.

I have tryed the Pli and latest Gemini, and even restored a backup that had been mounted (and working) and still the same, have spents lots of time reading and trying.... Have tryed setting the share in the Web Interface and through the Menu. I have got SMB shares working for my Xbox on my PC, and that shouldn't affect it?

I CAN sucesfully mount the image, but get the same message "Record failed due to inaccesible storage".

On your PC you have created a folder called dreambox and a subfolder called movie (not movies)?

In the DB expert setup >comm setup the IP address is your PC and you can ping your Dreambox from your PC?

The username and password exist on your PC and have been set to rwx?

And....

If your PC is off when you switch on your Dreambox reboot the Dreambox after turning your PC on.

your PC folder is shared as \dreambox?

I'm sure there was a config file (xml) that I uploaded to my Dreambox that had the path to my PC dreambox folder e.g. F:\Dreambox\movie but I can't remember what... I think that was when I had plugins on my hard drive so prob not relevant.


If your PC is 10.0.0.8 can you access \\10.0.0.8\dreambox\movie\

If you have another PC on your network try it as well and try to save a file.

Might have it sussed!!

I went against the manual after trying everything over the last few weeks.

I turned 'Simple File Sharing' ON.

Then straight away the
17.15 GB ~8 h, 52 min
showed up in the web interface.

I could then navigate to my movie folder and hopefully everything will now be OK.

Tomake the change, open a folder window, then: tools > folder options > view > Simple File Sharing [Put a tick here].

Hope it works for you.

One problem with the above, my SMB shares for my Xbox dont work anymore!!!

I can only see files in the root, so cant open any folders.

Oh well, back to the drawing board.........
