I have a Laptop running Ubuntu. The external Hard Drive is attached to the netgear router. Both are wire connected. The external Hard Drive shows under the network section in files. but when I try to get plex to find it the external Hard Drive doesn't show up.
I tried the instructions for Mounting NTFS Drives on Linux https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/200288606-Mounting-NTFS-Drives-on-Linux this gives an error that the devise is in use or already mounted. So I unmounted it and tried again and received the same error.
Perhaps using this process I am reading the NTFS drive of my laptop? I cannot tell.
I tried adding this entry to
//192.168.1.1/USB_Storage/mybook/ /media/public ntfs-3g permissions,auto 0 0
got an error:
ntfs-3g: Failed to access volume '//192.168.1.1/USB_Storage/mybook/': No such file or directory
I don't have much experience with Ubuntu. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Chris
