Can't rip to mapped NAS drive

This is my first post, so please be gentle!

I am having trouble ripping to a share on a NAS device.

I have my ripping output destination set to M:\Music\__Rips, and the naming convention set to <Artist>\<Album>\## - <Title>. M:\ is mapped to a share (\\gaia\media) on a NAS box with 4TB of storage.

When I rip a CD, it goes through all the motions - reads the CD and shows percent complete for each track in turn as the rip progresses - but there is nothing in the folder!

If I set the destination to L:\Music\__Rips (where L:\ is a USB drive) then everything works fine.

If I set it to reference the share by name instead of mapped drive letter (\\gaia\media\Music\__Rips) then it still fails.

Thanks in advance!
Graham

Go to your NAS drive and check you can actually write files to it. Either start a new notepad document in \\gaia\media\Musica\__Rips or copy another file to that location.

I am guessing you are looking at a file rights issue of some form.

Oh yes, I can definitely write to it. In fact, what I am doing in the mean time is ripping to a local drive and then using Windows Explorer to copy the files to the NAS.

Hi BP

Your reply got me to thinking that there must be some problem with the folder, rather than with WinAmp. I rechecked all the permissions and they looked OK. So then I tried deleting the folder completely and recreating it with the same name and other attributes, and now it works!

I guess the real cause will remain a mystery, but everything is now working as it should and I thank you for giving me the push in the right direction :-)

Cheers,
Graham
