I doubt if there is anything wrong with the NAS. I suspect its something to do with File Sharing, and/or file format, so could be of folders or individual files, so how Windows sees the files/folders. After every Windows update I have had issues with that. A few updates ago my Oppo would no longer get to files on my PC, whereas the Linux based NAS was not a problem, I managed to get the PC to allow the Oppo then another update and it stopped sharing again. So I gave up trying to sort it, and just use the NAS, but I'm looking at getting an Intel NUC which would be Windows based and run Foobar2000, so fun ahead I imagine.There are a lot of titles when I search for Intel NUC, so I just picked this one.
My NUC/JRiver combo has been running perfectly. Dr. Simple has been helping me a bit, as of this Saturday the NUC wanted a windows update and I did. Now my NUC does not want to read my NAS as it did before, files are there, but will play back some and not others, some thumbnails show, and then when I go to play they revert yo the red and don't play. I have rebooted NAS and NUC multiple times and with mild success, I have changed the what JRiver looks for, in my case the NAS is \\M:, which it always has been.
JRiver works perfectly, the NUC works perfectly but the connect between the two seems all messed up. I am at work now and all I can think of is how smart it was to backup the NAS. I was thinking, of course I would only do a couple files for experiment and that is to delete the NAS files and replace with the back up files, time consuming of course but not as time consuming as re-ripping which I would cry if I had to do that.
I believe in the future I will not do a Windows update or if I do I will turn off the NAS before I update the NUC.
I am so dissapointed as it was working perfectly. I even uninstalled my JRiver 24, it did not help, plus, no big deal, but I lost my players, which I now have to remake my Stereo, 5.1 and 4.0 players.
Any suggestions for fixing the connection between NAS and JRiver after a Windows update?
