@Kryptos Did you tell the Atom to use it as a music archive?
(Setup → Muziek beheren → Muziekarchieven configureren → Lokale stations weergeven; should be able to see & pick the drive there and use it; at least, that’s my guess, not having an Atom)
This setting does not exist on the Atom unfortunately. I believe it is a Star only setting. Thanks for the tip though, would have been an easy fix if it worked.
The only reason it is a Star music store is because it says that it is. It is simply a nested folder structure with sound files with some text files carrying Naim metadata peppered in between. I find it surprising that the other Uniti devices won’t read it out. So there is either a limit to the folder nesting it can read or the Naim metadata tells it not to try read this device. So I was hoping someone had this info before I totally redo the drive.
The WAV files remain perfectly readable, no strange encryption used. But as you say, I will need to reformat the drive and transfer the files back, methinks. But then in a standard flat folder structure.
Yes of course that it true. All I am saying is that many times this issue has been reported here and Naim’s response has always ultimately been that Star music stores cannot be used on other devices. Obviously you can put the music files onto a USB or something, turn on Server mode in the Atom and it should all work. But you can’t just move the store holding a Star’s music store, plug it into something else and expect it to work. That’s all I am saying.
That’s unfortunate. One would think, seeing as it basically shares the same software release with (a.o.) the Star, that it could in principle be capable of reading such a music store. Perhaps someone from the Naim software team (and/or Naim support) could provide the definite answer?
You’re welcome. Still, sad to see you leaving the Star-fleet.
