I would like to know if the drobo second gen unit can be used as a media
server for movies.
the unit has 4 X 2tera hard drives installed and I have the droboshare functional
I have transferred some of my movies to the drobo
I can play them from the drobo to my pc
but I would like to share it so my O’Player media unit can detect the drobo like my other shared hard drives and play the movies on my TV
I see the drobo on my desktop as Drobo on ‘DroboShare (DroboShare)’ (Z: )
the drobo is not “shared” in the sense of drive sharing with windows
if I bring up the properties of the drobo I see a security folder with lots of options. I need to know what options and permissions to grant, so I can achieve my goal – if thats possible
the O’player recognizes my local network and any pc with shared internal drives. I managed to get an external usb drive shared by granting permissions to “Everyone” for that usb drive and by changing the drive letter to F instead of F$ for example.
can that process work for drobo? in the drobo properties there is no “sharing” options, just the security and permissions options
