Synology DS212j and iTunes
I'd appreciate any advice on the following issue. I finally took the plunge and bought the synology nas which I've had my eye on for some time. I've since spent a couple of evenings formatting drives and transferring over itunes data . I had to move my mac upstairs to my router where the nas is to set it up and left it there to transfer the iTunes media over a wired connection in the hope of speeding it up. This all worked fine until I moved the mac back downstairs. I tried to rip a CD last night assuming that it would save it directly to the nas, but the media folder was pointing back to its default position. The NAS wasnt showing as a "shared" item despite the fact that I hadn't changed any settings.
I can't see how it is relevant but I did jailbreak my Apple TV and install XBMC onto it whilst the mac was still wired into the router.
I can still connect to the nas via safari and also stream audio and movies to my ipad and apple tv, so it is still connected to my wireless network. I just can't understand why itunes isn't recognising it as a "shared" item.
I sat in front of google for a few hours last night trying to find similar problems but found nothing that helped. Anyone with any experience on this as it would be much appreciated as I desperately need to delete itunes data off my mac and I wont until iTunes and the NAS are stable (despite having it all backed up off site)
