I recently set up a system using
At the moment all i actually want to use this for is to play my media back on my livingroom tv and share all the files on my network however LinuxMCE doesnt show up any of the files from the hard drive. How can i get LinuxMCE to show all my media from the samsung drive?
Hello and welcome to the project!
At some point during your initial runs, LMCE should have asked you about the Samsung drive... specifically asking if you wish to use it.
How you answered that question will determine if LMCE catalogues the content.
Did you say:
3) Yes and use LMCE Directory Structure? (this doesn't erase anything, it just creates the directories btw)
If you answered 1 you will need to find the device number and remove it [in the pluto-admin web page] so LMCE asks you again, to which you should respond with #3.
I'm not sure what happens when you just say Yes but don't use the LMCE Directory Structure.
And if you answered #3, the preferred choice, you will need to ensure you have moved all your movies into the public/data/videos directory (you can create sub-directories below OK).
This wiki page may help you digest how things are laid out:http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Howto:_Using_Network_Shares
Your response to the question above will determine our answers and directions that follow.
