Got the Node today...works, sounds pretty good, playing CD files ripped to .flac, but I've not been able to get it to recognize any files on my 120GB SSD. I tried in a passive, and powered external enclosures,and I tried formatting the drive in xFAT, and NTFS, to no joy. 16GB thumb drive was no issue though, formatted in FAT. Same 120GB drive connected via USB to a PC and shared, is visible via the Node's "Network shares"...again formatted in xFAT, but hoping to get it connected locally. I'll be ordering some 24bit/192kHz High Def albums to try as well.
***Update - FWIW, it looks like the Nodes will support "hard drives/SSDs" but they need to be formatted in FAT32...of to find a 3rd party app, that can format larger partitions.
