I believe the problem is NTFS filesystem.  I remember seeing a couple of post regarding the issue here is one that I found.

Well it says that it can still read NTFS, which is all i need. I don't necessarily have to write to it. Has anyone been able to set up media shares on NTFS over the network?

The system used to write a .id3 files for each of the media files, this may be the issue although I have not confirmed this with the new release.  You can also check the check box under the device so that the device is readonly.  I am just guessing here but it is at least worth a try.

Sorry about your problems

Thanks...I will have to make sure i check the read only box. Should i try installing the package that lets you write to NTFS? the last thing i want is to enable one minor thing and break something else. I suppose its worth trying at least. i havent used unix/linux since the late 90s and that was brief. i have a lot of catching up to do  ;) i will post how it goes with the read only box checked. i have seen a couple people had the same problem i am having but never saw anyone respond or any post saying they managed to fix it. thanks to all of you for your help.

Take a look at this wiki page,

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Howto:_Using_Network_Shares

I ran the following script from the command line and I found out that my FREENAS box was trying to be a master samba server which was causing conflicts.

Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/pluto/bin/Configure_1837.sh -d <device number>
After I corrected the FREENAS box, I then ran the above code and the Shares were no automatically set up. 

It turned out to be something very simple, but nonetheless, I have been struggling with this for quite some time.

Thanks,

Rob
