Gadget itself doesn't need to be configured, if you mean configuring Samba shares, check there into "features": https://forum.samygo.tv/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=6778
I do NOT receive any PM. Please use forum.

Exactly what I was looking for, it is working now. I had set this up before but moved my samba server and I could not remember what else I needed to change.

Thanks Zoelechat!

Okay, this was work but since I added username and password authentication it has stopped - although my Android tablet and XBMC box can connect to the samba server fine, and browse and stream media. On my Samsung UE32H5500 File Cd-Gadget prompts after about 30 seconds, I select all, and it displays a smb dir, when I enter it it displays the IP of my samba server as a directory, and inside that is shows a directory called Media, which is the name of the samba share I have set up on the server.

/etc/samba.conf running on the server:

Code: Select all

[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server %v
netbios name = ubuntu
security = user
map to guest = bad user
dns proxy = no

#============================ Share Definitions ==============================

[Media]
path = /media/dusf/HDD2/Media
valid users = @sambagroup
guest ok = no
writable = yes
browsable = yes
force user = dusf
smb_userdata located in /mtd_rwarea:

Code: Select all

USER="sambauser" #or your login name
PASSWD="theactualpasswordforsambauser" #password
SERVER="192.168.1.2" #IP of your samba server
SHARES="Media" #your network shares, divided with space
On the server sambauser is part of the group sambagroup, and in smb_userdata above I am using the acual password for PASSWD. Like I said, I can access and browse files fine from my Android tablet and XBMC box, any idea why it is not working for File CD Gadget?

This was resolved by editing the username and password in /mnt/etc/init.d/04_04_samba.init on the Samsung TV :)
