I can normally access all of my NAS shares without issue from my Ubuntu laptop. I have bookmarked all of the shares without issue, although they are a little slow to access.

However moving files to and from the NAS is driving me crazy!!! I can play music files, and movies, but i can't select them to copy.

Most annoying is that it is impossible to copy a folder/ file from my laptop to the NAS, every time i get the following error;

The specified location is not mounted

I then try again to find that the folder has been copied, but only part of the contents.

Does anyone have a suggestion what the problem is?
