Windows 10: Help required with Networking/router

    Help required with Networking/router

    Hope someone can help.

    I'm getting to grips with my new Cambridge CXN streamer.

    I'm ok with connecting an external USB stick to my PC as the CXN recognises this through my Windows 10 library.

    However, when I connect the stick to my (BT) router, although Windows sees it in the Network section & I can access it & play music, when I try to add the stick to the library, it says its not indexed.

    There doesn't seem to be a way of adding the stick to the index section for Windows to include it when plugged into the router.

    Is there a solution to this?

    If you map the drive you should be able to index it.

    Thanks for the reminder about Tutorials Kbird!! The drive is now showing: Music(\\bthub4\usb3) (Z:)

    I can also add this to The Library but for some reason I can't add it to the Indexing section. My Cambridge CXN streamer doesn't find it on the network.

    Any clues?

    & Thanks
