Problems accessing networked USB HDDs
I need some help with mapping my USB HDDs on my network to my Oppo 103 player.
Basically my setup is this: I have a couple of USB HDDs connected to a USB hub. The USB Hub is connected to my Airport Extreme Router. I would like my 103 to play from those drives on the network. Having those drives on the network allows me to see them from any device in my house.
So what I've encountered so far is this:
When I go to the Network Menu, I see my NAS (not used for media files), and my router's name. Presumably my router's name reflects anything that could be connected to my router.
I then selected my router, and it asked for my username and password. Note that I had already connected to my network via wifi, so I was somewhat surprised to be asked for both, especially since my network doesn't need a username. So I'm assuming that I had to use my admin logon details for the network to connect to the router via my Oppo.
After several unsuccessful attempts, I finally managed to get logged on. It then provided me with 3 folder names: Photos, Music, and Videos. I don't use those folders so I was somewhat surprised about that.
I selected Videos, and it then showed me 2 USB HDDs (the two I currently have connected to my router via a USB Hub). When I then selected the drive of my choice, it again asked me for a username and password.
I never set up any password for that drive, so I'm surprised it asked me. I tried all kinds of combinations (including nothing at all), without success, and now I basically cannot access that drive.
Could someone explain to me what's going on here, and how I can fix this issue?
As a note, I'm using a Mac at home, I don't have any windows based PCs.
Many thanks in advance!
