View Full Version : [ubuntu] PS3 media server can't specify share dir

March 6th, 2011, 03:45 AM
Hi All,

I'm new to Ubuntu/linux. I'm building a new pc, gonna use ubuntu rather than buying windows 7. I'm familiar with computers and ubuntu is doing most of what I need it to do.

but PS3 media server is sharing the entire file system. I have an external hard drive but the PS3 can only go 8 folders deep.

/"/"/media/mass storage/TV/Show/Transcode/Transcode folders

That's as far as I can get... I need to get my mass storage on the main selection. I've attempted editing through PMS gui, and PMS.conf, however neither of the changes of share directories has been reflected on my PS3.

Any ideas/suggestions?
