Hello all,

I have a DB500 and i used to have hydra. With hydra I had my computer's hard disk mounted for recording and playback.
Recently I updated to gemini 2.7 and I cannot mount the har disk. I get an error message saying that mount failed.
Any ideas?

Thanks in advanced.

Have you set the permissions to rwx on your HD for the DB user set up on your DB for that mount?

Hello mhku.
Yes i did that but the mount is failing.
Is there a difference between hydra and gemini in the mount procedure?

Does the \dreambox\movie folder have to be on C: ?
Do the username and password have to be dream dream?

You set the username & password ie create the user in Windows.

No, movie can be anywhere- you set it in Expert Settings > mount.

are you mounting through telnet ? if so paste us your exact command.

With gemini you nee to mount onto /hdd/ by the way and make sure your share has a folder called movie inside it so that then /hdd/movie will exist also.

I had the same problem.... It sometimes gives the error, but mounts it anyway.

Try to mount it on mnt/hdd instead of hdd....it should work.

For any members who find this post using search in the future, Nitrocrazy's post refers to a NAS and not an HDD in your PC.
