I have owned a Melco N1/ZH2 for a couple of years and recently had it updated by Melco UK to EX spec. Previously I used to copy music stored on the Melco to a USB drive for use in my car. I simply used to copy the files wirelessly using file explorer on my laptop over my home network. However now I am unable to copy files from the Melco. Each time I get an ‘Interrupted Action’ message stating that ‘an unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file; Error 0x8000000A’. This makes no sense to me! I am aware that some settings on the EX differ from earlier settings on the Melco. I have SMB File Sharing ‘On’ - whatever SMB means?
It’s a standard Windows error code but terribly unspecific. When googling it I find various people having problems with this error code when copying files from hard disks in various devices like TV set-top boxes. I some cases might have something to do with the device running a UPnP server. It’s probably a Windows issue but I’d ask Melco, they may well know.
SMB is Windows’s network protocol for sharing files (and other stuff like printers) over the network.
That’s certainly a good idea as I do back up the Melco occasionally. However, if I have just ripped a CD or two I would like to be able to copy the files directly to my USB stick. That’s what I’ve been able to do in the past.
